Network Rail ‘yes’ to bridge clean-up
Stone’s graffiti clean-up team WILL be able to remove graffiti from the railway bridge on Radford Street after owner Network Rail finally gave permission.
Organiser Kieran Mcknight had been told earlier this week that the bridge couldn’t be touched during Wednesday’s first community clean-up in the town. Other parts of the town were targeted instead – click here to read Kieran’s report of the first clean-up.
Network Rail – who own the Radford Street bridge near Langtrys – have now said that it can be included in Sunday’s community clean-up.
Kieran said: “There are some conditions – we can’t use a power washer on the bridge, for example – but it’s great to get the all-clear. The graffiti on the bridge is some of the worst and most noticeable, so we can’t wait to get it removed on Sunday.”
People are asked to meet on the Christchurch Way car park at 11am on Sunday – please take buckets and rubber gloves. A lunch of bacon and sasuage sandwiches will be served at the Christ Church Centre at 1pm for everyone taking part in the community clean-up.
