News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

They said at the meeting it will be open Dawn to Dusk when complete.
I hope they are joking, it saves a mighty yomp walking back across the lines from Chatham to Gillingham

Work has started on the Great Lines Heritage Park.

There's a number of marker posts on the Lines, and they've closed off a long narrow section on the lines between Gillingham and Brompton to make a new footpath. Also i've noticed vegitation being cleared in a few places.

From Kent Messenger

"Great Lines Park should be open by 2011
 
Five contractors are being appointed to transform the Great Lines into a heritage park.

The go ahead for the 2.1 million scheme was given by Medway Council's Cabinet on Tuesday.

The area between the hospital, Brompton Barracks and Fort Amherst is part of a bid to gain World Heritage Status for Medway's military remains around the Historic Dockyard.

The work will involve the laying of footpaths, architectural lighting, the construction of bridges over the defensive ditches which will be excavated between the Fort Anherst and the Lower Lines.

The government backed project has English Heritage's active involvement.

The scheme - called the Great Lines Heritage Park - should be completed within the next two years."

Something happening in Medway within the next two year, No Chance!  ;D

Work is underway at Fort Amherst to create an action plan for the Great Lines Heritage Park. Fort Amherst could become a major public entrance to the Park, providing excellent links with Chatham town centre and waterfront. Survey work is now determining what work will be required to create and maintain the site as a free-access public park.

The survey has been commissioned by the Chatham World Heritage steering group, and is being carried out by specialist consultancy The Bailey Partnership. The work is being paid for by Medway Council, the South East England Development Agency, English Heritage and the European Union.

Tony Goulden, Chair of Fort Amherst Heritage Trust, said: "We are delighted that Fort Amherst will be making as major a contribution to Chatham's future as it did to its past. The fort is integral both to the World Heritage Site application, and to the regeneration of Chatham town centre and waterfront.  The Great Lines Park will be a landmark fusion of heritage and regeneration."
