Crack the road code: CTY SQ
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
