New Bus Shelter – Ormskirk Road, Aintree Village – It probably took half a dozen years to get it installed!

So what a new bus shelter, you might say. And you would be right had it not taken more years to get it installed than I care to remember. And it’s not just me that’s banging away at Merseytravel over recent years as I know that a number Maghull/Lydiate residents and Cllr. Jane Day of Maghull Town Council have raised the lack of a shelter at this rather exposed spot.

As a point of reference it is close to Wickes Aintree store on the A59 on the northbound carriageway. Getting the shelter installed here is an important move forward because anyone travelling by bus to Aintree’s Retail parks from Maghull and Lydiate needs to be able to keep dry as they wait for the bus home. For years they have not been able to keep dry so a big thank you to Merseytravel for putting the new shelter in. It may have taken too long as far as some folk are concerned but at least it is there now.
