Pleased to see the new shelter being erected last Friday next to the site of the old and now demolished Maghull Library, although what was wrong with the old one?
The future of the site (behind the shelter), which also includes the land that the former Stafford Moreton Youth Centre sat on as well, is still unknown since Netto went belly up before a brick was even laid for its new Maghull store.
I’ve been making inquiries into the missing bus shelter outside the site of the old Maghull Library via Cllr. John Dodd who sits on the Merseytravel Committee. This is what Merseytravel has said:-
The Developer responsible for the former library site has provided a purchase order directly to Clear Channel Uk Ltd for the provision of a new bus shelter at this location. Merseytravel has received confirmation of this aspect and we look forward to a shelter facility being reinstated as soon as possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to give a specific time frame for the reinstatement but it will definitely be happening within the next 4-6 weeks.
Let’s hope it happens soon and certainly before the autumn sets in.
The rather glaring consequence (for bus users) of the clearance of the old Maghull Library site in Liverpool Road North is that those awaiting a Liverpool bound bus have lost the use of the bus shelter that once sat on the edge of the site.
The delay in developing the site caused by the demise of Netto, before a brick was even laid for its new Maghull store, means at least so it seems that replacing the bus shelter is now in the how long is a piece of string category.
Somewhere in Liverpool – Can’t help but laugh at this photo.
