PEELING signs on Shoreham’s landmark new bridge have raised eyebrows in the town.

The nameplates, which read Adur Ferry Bridge and include a symbol reflecting the shape of the bridge, appear at both the town and Beach ends.

But they have started to peel away, prompting one resident to write to the Shoreham Herald.

Victoria Benson said: “I’m surprised that for a bridge, which apparently cost in the region of £10million, that the signs are applied with sticky back plastic. They are now peeling off, as can be seen from the photo.”

The bridge, owned by West Sussex County Council, took more than a year to build and was opened in November 2013.

A spokseman for the county council said the adhesive signs were temporary.

“The signs on the bridge have been vandalised.

“We are looking to get something permanent to replace them but at this stage we cannot give a date when these signs will be installed.”
