Maghull – It’s new North Railway Station will have level access soon – Only 3 months after it opened!

Well the pressure finally brought about some action and work is proceeding – This is how things looked earlier today:-

But who will provide the dropped kerb to enable cyclists to access the station off School Lane? Oh no, let’s hope it not another case of here we go again; let’s guess the likely responses:-

It was not considered as part of the new station build project
or
It’s Merseytravel’s/Merseyrail’s/Sefton Council’s/Persimmon’s/Network Rail’s responsibility
or
Sefton Council will provide a dropped kerb if someone else pays for it
or
There’s no money and its not going to happen
or
Common sense will prevail and someone in authority will get it done ASAP

Take your pick but don’t hold your breath because I’m beginning to think that too many things about this new station project were not thought about/planned for.

PS. I’m still awaiting some firm information about the proposed foot/cycle path through to the station from Park Lane i.e. is it going to happen and if so when?
