Crack the road code: CTY SQ

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Staggering £630m Backlog -

Mr R Ether­ing­ton (‘When did town be­come a city?’ KE, Jan­uary 25)) says the road near the sta­tion is marked ‘City’.

He needs new specs. It’s ac­tu­ally marked ‘Cty’ which is an ab­bre­vi­a­tion of County.

It also says ‘Sq’ which is an ab­bre­vi­a­tion of Square, a fur­ther clue to the cor­rect in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the mark­ings. John Clay­ton Chilm­ing­ton Green

With ref­er­ence to the road sig­nage at the sta­tion bridge, please tell read­ers who choose to write in that if they thought long enough be­fore com­plain­ing that ‘Cty Sq’ means County Square, NOT Can­ter­bury or city.

For good­ness sake it doesn’t take much to work out, even if short­en­ing it could con­fuse some. Mrs L Pack Bils­ing­ton

With ref­er­ence to some­one stat­ing the road sign in Beaver/ Sta­tion Road means to the City ... they should have gone to Spec­savers.

I thought a cor­rec­tion would be made in the Fe­bru­ary 1 is­sue. But no, then some­one said it meant t o Can­ter­bury. Ac­tu­ally the word­ing on the road is CTY SQ. County Square per­haps? R Roberts Ash­ford

Fur­ther to the let­ters from Mr R Ether­ing­ton and LD God­dard re­gard­ing the ‘CTY’ road sig­nage on ac­cess to town over the rail bridge. If ei­ther looked prop­erly, they would see SQ be­neath ... an ob­vi­ous in­di­ca­tion that the lane leads to County Square, shop­ping and park­ing. Karen Mansell Ash­ford their daily lives.

Our MP Damian Green seems more con­cerned about the pro­posed third Thames cross­ing than ad­dress­ing is­sues con­cern­ing the paral­y­sis of our lo­cal roads which will cause lo­cal busi­nesses to fail and peo­ple be­ing un­able to get to med­i­cal ap­point­ments, to schools with their chil­dren, to work and so forth, on time.

The Prime Min­is­ter and her Brexit Sec­re­tary David Davis are out of touch with the re­al­ity of how or­di­nary peo­ple move about in this county.

I doubt that ei­ther of them use the ferries or Euro­tun­nel. They are not even us­ing Eurostar to get to Brus­sels. Tax­pay­ers’ money is used to char­ter RAF planes in­stead.

Is it be­cause ‘Euro’ in any trans­port ti­tle is such anath­ema to Brex­i­teers?

This ide­o­log­i­cally driven ‘Brexit at any cost gov­ern­ment’ is lead­ing the na­tion down the gar­den path. No won­der there is a pop­u­lar move­ment to stop it. Stephen R Ben­nett Mead­ow­brook Close, Ash­ford
