Sefton Bus Network – Merseytravel’s Maghull consultation event

I attended Merseytravel’s consultation event in Maghull yesterday held in their rather fetching and unmissable tent at Central Square.


I raised concerns about the lack of a bus to Ormskirk from Lydiate since the 311 was withdrawn. I also asked for a 231 circular bus to meet the last train from Liverpool each night rather than the service ceasing with the last but one train.

I do hope that these issues can be addressed as part of the review of bus routes across Sefton Borough.

Merseyrail – Later trains please

The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above.

I think this appeal for later trains is spot on and agree that it is a gripe I have heard on many occasions. But for it to work well, for example, the 231 bus that serves Maghull and Lydiate would also be required to meet all the late trains at Maghull Station. Presently it does not meet the last train even now!
