What a mess, this grass verge is in Lydiate’s Kenyon’s Lane.
Residents tell me that the problem is caused by the size of the lorries accessing the dairy opposite their homes. It seems that due to the entrance to the dairy being too narrow for large lorries to be able to turn in straight off the carriageway they are mounting the grass verge to try to widen their turning circle. Trouble is the consequences for the verge are dire indeed.
Having spoken to some of the residents living opposite the dairy I have asked Sefton Council’s Highways Dept. to look into the matter with a view to finding a sensible solution as clearly things can’t go on as they are.
The residents clearly want to live in harmony with the dairy and they tell me that representations have previously been made by them in an attempt to get the problem addressed.
More news when I have it.
