Lydiate – That Coppull Road pavement or the lack of it

I blogged about the rather strange lack of a pavement on a part of Coppull Road in Lydiate not so long back. It’s opposite the junction with Barnes Drive and its been like this ever since the estate was built. My concern is pedestrian safety and you can access my original blog posting via this link:-

The response from Sefton Council’s Highways Dept. was that due to financial cut-backs they no long have a budget to undertake such remedial works to address this short section of missing pavement. An unsurprising response which is very much of our austerity times sadly. I do have sympathy with the Council here by the way, as I realise how short of money they are.

Well at least I’ve put it on Sefton Council’s radar and lets hope that there’s no accident at this location before the money does become available to right a long-term pedestrian wrong.
