Noth­ing wrong with bridge colour

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - POINTS OF VIEW -

As a pro­fes­sional land­scape ar­chi­tect deal­ing with colour in the coun­try­side, I ap­plaud the beau­ti­ful fresh green of the new M20 foot­bridge - so much bet­ter than the aw­ful ‘land­scape green’ that coun­cils love to use.

To me it sig­ni­fies spring and new be­gin­nings. If it was in France they would ap­plaud it - so glad it isn’t dark, dreary and mu­nic­i­pal - so hope­fully coun­cil­lor Paul Bartlett doesn’t make them change it.

I write with ut­ter amaze­ment re­ally, con­cern­ing the ar­ti­cle on the new M20 bridge (De­cem­ber 20), I can­not be­lieve it was branded “rather green”.

The bridge fits in well with the nat­u­ral colours around it.

Yes, why not paint it some bright hor­ri­ble colour and waste even more money - be­cause that’s what coun­cils do. Eileen Wil­son,
