Lydiate Labour Action Team’s Cllr June Burns on Moss Lane.


A potentially dangerous bend on a busy Lydiate road is to become a lot safer, thanks to the Lydiate Labour Action Team.

Moss Lane was recently resurfaced to eradicate the road's dangerous potholes.

But shortly after the work was completed, residents contacted Lydiate Labour Action Team's Cllr June Burns to raise concerns that yellow lines that had stopped cars parking near to the bend, had not been repainted.

When Cllr Burns visited the site, she said she was concerned that the cars parking on the bend were causing a hazard and dangerously impeding the visibility for cars travelling south from Southport Road onto Moss Lane.

Cllr Burns immediately contacted the council to call for the yellow lines to be reinstated.

Cllr Burns said: "After Moss Lane was resurfaced, which we were all delighted about, I was contacted by a number of residents who were concerned that parked cars, that were parking where the yellow lines should have been, were causing a real danger.

"I made a site visit and saw for myself that cars were causing a clear obstruction to vehicles heading from Southport and travelling into Moss Lane. Motorists turning into Moss Lane from Southport Road were having to veer into the other side of the road to get past the parked cars which was potentially placing them into the path of vehicles coming from the opposite direction.

"To make matters worse, the parked cars were also impeding visibility, making the junction dangerous.

"I contacted the council to raise the concerns. I was informed that Highway Maintenance would take action as soon as possible."

Cllr Burns thanked Sefton Council for agreeing to respond to the issue.

Cllr Burns said: "We all know that Sefton Council has been hit hard by the Tory-Lib Dem Government cuts. Despite that, Sefton Council has still assured me that they will take immediate action to resolve the problem.

"They identify the potential problems that this issue is causing.

"I'd like to thank Sefton Council and in particular the Highways Maintenance Department for their prompt action."
