Maghull Labour Action Team is delighted that plans to install interactive road signs to warm motorists about their excessive speed have finally been given the green light for Liverpool Road South.

The hi-tech signs are to be installed after Labour run Maghull Town Council agreed to part fund them, with the rest coming from Area Committee funding.

The signs will be installed on the southern end of Liverpool Road South.

Maghull Labour Action Team has spoken to lots of residents who have complained that cars travel along the road at far too fast a speed.

Maghull Town Council Labour Councillor Steve Kermode said: "There are a number of schools around that area, including Maghull High and the traffic there needs to slow down. There's always lots of school children around this area and there's a danger that there could be a serious accident.

"As members of the Labour Action Team has spoken to residents in that area, the speeding traffic is one of the main areas of concern.

"So we are delighted that we have managed to get the support of the Maghull Town Council in getting the signs installed."

Maghull Town Council's Labour leader Cllr Maurice Byrne said he was delighted the council could play its part in ensuring that these signs are installed.

Cllr Byrne said: "The speeding vehicles on that part of Liverpool Road South is a major issue and one which needs to be tackled.

"Cars are travelling from Switch Island at far too great a pace and this is obviously very dangerous.

"Maghull Town Council and the Maghull Labour Action Team heard many of the concerns and we are now delighted that action is being taken."
