DNA statue for A14?
TWICE recently I have travelled on the M5 across the Somerset Levels. Beside the road near Bridgewater there is a sculpture of a man, which is insignificant because it cannot be seen from a distance and one can be unaware of its existence if concentrating
TWICE recently I have travelled on the M5 across the Somerset Levels. Beside the road near Bridgewater there is a sculpture of a man, which is insignificant because it cannot be seen from a distance and one can be unaware of its existence if concentrating on the road conditions, for example overtaking a lorry.
Whatever is decided to be sited beside the A14 (The Hunts Post Letters) must be large enough to be noticed from a few hundred yards (like the proposed horse in Kent).
My suggestion is a vertical model of the double helix of DNA. The discovery of DNA in Cambridge has prompted a new understanding of heredity and medical knowledge crucial to man's future. It deserves full recognition.
In consideration of the siting of a large sculpture near a main road, it is necessary to think of it as a potential distraction to drivers. If a sculpture is permitted, the distraction effect of wind farms must be ignored also.
