Illuminated arch signs will soon be installed at each end of Central Walk, in Bury St Edmunds.

The first sign was installed this week and the other is due to go up next Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for St Edmundsbury Borough Council said the signs had been designed and manufactured as part of efforts to improve Bury’s street scene.

They cost £8,000 and were funded by the developer of the arc shopping centre.

The subject has prompted much debate on social media, with @jojolebbo, @CarolTricker and @MarkFNColeman among Twitter users labelling them ‘a waste of money’.

In contrast, @stegs73 said the arch looked ‘good’ and @PHPsauce said he thought it looked ‘great’.

“It’s a good attempt to join the old and new parts of town,” said @PHPsauce, on Twitter.
