Maghull – Bus Stop Shelters – Liverpool Road North

Not so long ago a lady asked me via Facebook if I could assist in helping her get bus shelters on Liverpool Road North between the Dodds Lane and Westway junctions.

This is the section of road in question. Liverpool Road North, Maghull - December 2010

Unfortunately I can’t trace back the thread where it popped up so this is a bit of a long shot in the hope that she sees it. I have also copied the same note on my Facebook page and on the Maghull & Lydiate in Old Pictures Group on Facebook.

Merseytravel have responded saying this:-

Both pavements at the bus stop locations are currently too narrow to accommodate bus shelters. The bus stop you refer to (towards Southport) would require a new hard stand area being dug into the rear grass verge in order to maintain an adequate, statutory passing width. At this present time, we do not have a surplus budget to meet the costs of a new bus shelter at this location but the request will certainly be held on file and should the applicable funding become available in the near future, further consideration will be given to this site.
