Lydiate – Southport Road continues to flood – Will Sefton Council take action?

Carriageway flooding - Southport Road Lydiate 09 07 16

This is a long-standing problem in Lydiate’s Southport Road and despite Sefton Council having tried to resolve it a number of times the flooding keeps on happening after even a moderate fall of rain.

It can make the life of pedestrians and cyclists rather difficult though as they need to have good timing and a decent turn of speed if they are avoid an early bath when this road floods.

I have raised it yet again with Sefton’s Highway Engineers in the hope that a permanent solution will be put in place. Not holding my breath though!
