Downholland – Eagar Lane/Greens Lane resurfacing outside Lavender Barns

Back in August 2019 I called on Lancashire County Council to resurface the stretch of Eagar Lane/Greens Lane outside Lavender Barns just yards into Lancashire from Lydiate, and I blogged about the state of the lane – see link below:-

If I recall correctly that prompted more patch repairs but the message must have got home to LCC (maybe others raised the matter with them too?) as a couple of days ago they did a significant resurfacing job:-

Editor’s note – ‘Thanks for that LCC, much appreciated, but sadly there’s another very poor stretch of Greens Lane which has deteriorated significantly of recent months. It’s around the entrance to the 2nd fishery, past Green’s House and near to the row of houses further into Downholland Civil Parish. I’ll pop a note on your website about it.’

Sefton Council – Resurfacing roads around parked cars – I suspect it happens more often than we may think

The Liverpool Echo has the story on its web site – see link above.

The article was brought to my attention but oddly and only very recently I actually saw another example of resurfacing around a parked car in Maghull’s Granville Avenue.

It’s a road I walk and cycle quite regularly and I saw the warning signs go up at either end of the road saying when the resurfacing was going to take place. The job was done but clearly one car owner did not know as the car was not moved and like the Albany Road Southport situation, in the Liverpool Echo article, the car was worked around by the tarmacadam contractors.
