Formby – Residents prisoners in their own homes

A Red Squirrel – What could be more symbolic of Formby

The Liverpool Echo has the story on its web site – see link above

As a rule of thumb I don’t go to Formby or indeed Southport when the sun is cracking the flags, particularly on Bank Holiday weekends, as I know that traffic chaos is all but a certainty.

Don’t get me wrong I love going to these places but, traffic jams and parking problems are not for me. I could tell what was going on in Formby from where the new Brooms Cross Road crosses Brickwall Lane near Sefton Village some miles south of Formby on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday just gone. The traffic was so heavy around 10am that when the lights changed for me to cycle across Brooms Cross Road I had to peddle between traffic stuck across the junction.

But I’m also not at all sure what can be done to stop this traffic and parking chaos happening again in future, except that the drivers caught up in it may well decide not to repeat the day out sat in their cars in traffic jams.

    It’s a real problem especially as you say we are prisoners in our own homes and can’t go anywhere. I live on Freshfield rd and the cars were double parked so huge jams, if I had an emergency God help me. Something has to be done this cannot be ignored.
