There can be little doubt that the canal through Sefton is now seeing a much high volume of traffic than for many, many years. Just behind the bridge is the busy Liverpool Road North, a former Turnpike Road, and the contrast between its congested traffic and the tranquillity of the canal is all too obvious to me as a local resident.
