Mayor Condemns Graffiti at Lennox Bridge
Over recent days, vandals have attacked the site and severely impacted the Bridge.
Mayor Greenhill said: "This is a disgraceful occurrence that shows no respect at all for such an historically significant site.
"Lennox Bridge is a landmark and in the past Council has had to purchase specialist graffiti removal chemicals from overseas in order to treat this precious sandstone bridge and not damage it. The surface is old and delicate and needs to be carefully managed.
"We have also put security measures in place previously and I have asked for advice as to whether these steps have revealed any evidence of the culprits.
"This is a crime. It is nothing else. This is a crime against an historic site that will cost our ratepayers a significant amount to clean.
"I am saddened by this act and express my disappointment at those responsible.
"I have personally referred the event to Council officers and I will engage with them directly on the cleaning operations.
"Council will look at increasing security measures while attending to restoration of this important landmark," Cr Greenhill concluded.
