Kiss­ing gate set to re­open

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Front Page -

A bricked-up ac­cess to Can­ter­bury East rail­way sta­tion is be­ing re-opened this week fol­low­ing an out­cry by res­i­dents.

In Jan­uary, rail firm South­east­ern re­moved a Vic­to­rian kiss­ing gate on a path link­ing Rho­daus Close and Lans­down Road, rul­ing that it posed a threat to pub­lic safety.

But af­ter wide­spread crit­i­cism, the rail firm has agreed to open up the ac­cess again, but with­out the gate, which has since been dis­posed of.
