Wimbledon Chase railway bridge will be repainted … pink (or maybe, “reddish”) [updated]
Following on from the announcement that the railway bridge at Wimbledon Chase will be repainted, a spokesperson for Network Rail confirmed to us:
I have been advised that this bridge will be painted as agreed by the council. To my knowledge this is due to be painted pink – please do not be alarmed as I have been informed that it will not be an eye sore and that it is a nice colour!
Let us know what you think!
UPDATE: On Tues 4 June, after asking further questions about this, we received the following message from Network Rail:
I appreciate [residents’] concerns however we are running out of time and discussing colours would only prolong this which I hope you understand. I have been advised that the bridge will be painted it’s original colour which I believe is reddish as this has faded. We have been working closely with the council to agree this.
The nature of these works is a significant amount of money as such hope the residents are aware of this.
So maybe not so pink after all.
