Trees, planters, benches – and even a fountain – could be installed to attract people to Victoria Gateway …Errrr…why?
… and as a guide to help blind pedestrians.You ‘help’ the blind by putting obstacles in their way? Who knew..?
Southend Council will look at ways to encourage people to congregate in the former roundabout outside Southend Victoria train station.I repeat…why?
Labour councillor Judith McMahon has also called for the disused fountain outside the Civic Centre and police station in Victoria Gateway to be relocated to the junction, which went through a multi-million pound revamp in 2011.So, despite that multi-million down the drain, it’s got to be dug up yet again, at a cost of how much, all to ‘attract people to congregate there’?
I'm baffled. Are Southend Council thinking of bringing in a ‘standing around tax’?
