Loose chippings danger on Maghull roads, Labour Action Team warn

Patrick McKinley


Maghull Labour Action Team has received confirmation that roadworks will be held on Station Road to fix the problem of loose chippings, debris and newly-formed potholes caused by the December cold spell.

The Labour Action Team wrote to Sefton Council calling for the poor condition of the road to be addressed and this week Capita Symonds confirmed the work would be done.

Maghull Labour Action Team leader Patrick McKinley, who is also Labour's council candidate for Sudell Ward, said he was delighted action.

Patrick said: "There has clearly been a problem on Station Road as the road service has rapidly started to fail, causing loose chippings. These can be dangerous to pedestrians as well as motorists as the chippings are hurled into the air.

"There is also the issue of cars travelling along the road at too great a speed. The road can already be a hazardous one because it is so narrow, but the poor condition of the road surface could lead to the vehicles skidding, losing control and causing an accident.

"Road signs have already been installed on the road highlighting the danger to motorists to take it easy.

"So it is great news that surface work is going to be taken."

Patrick has also highlighted other roads of concern to the council.

Patrick said: "There other roads in Maghull which are also a concern, including Hall Road. I have reported these to the council and am sure that action where will be taken where and when required.

"In the meantime, I would urge motorists to be aware of the added danger because of the condition of our roads and ease off the speed."
