Bridge Mural Threat

Mill Lane railway bridge MuralRailway bridges owned by British Snail (now known as Network Rail) are usually painted a boring grey, but six years ago the Mill Lane railway bridge in West Hampstead, north west London, was decorated with a colourful mural as the result of a community art project organized by Charlotte Gerrard. The 64-panel mural is getting a bit flaky, so Charlotte asked Network Rail to restore it. Fat chance! Hey Charlotte, why not ask Arts Council England to fund the restoration? It's always pontificating about bringing art to the masses. It should jump at the chance of funding the restoration of artwork created by the masses.
