Canterbury Grove footbridge

Canterbury Grove Bridge

Labour Candidate Jane Pickard on the litter strewn bridge

Labour campaigner Jane Pickard was shocked at the state of the foot bridge over the railway at Canterbury Grove. The bridge hasn’t been swept during the bad weather and so the litter has turned into a soggy mush. So this week Jane met with one of the West Norwood Street Inspectors who promised to get the walkway of the bridge cleared up and all the litter removed from under the bridge steps.

Jane says: “The footbridge is a litter blackspot, especially the area underneath the steps. As a resident of Thurlby Road, I do use the bridge and will be checking to make sure it doesn’t get this bad again.”

Network Rail are responsible for clearing the litter beside the track using litter picking teams specially trained to work close to trains. The Labour Action team has asked for a litter pick to be done soon – before spring when the weeds will growing all over the litter.
