Maghull Labour Action Team say new road signs are urgently needed for a quiet Maghull street as newly privatised postal staff rely on the signs for their deliveries.
Sudell Ward Labour councillors Rob Owens and Lynn Gatherer, together with Maghull Labour Action Team's John Sayers have requested new signs for Hodder Avenue after they found one sign looking the worse for wear and the other missing all together.
John said the team spotted the problem while out canvasing in the area.
John said: "We noticed that one of the signs was missing and the other was in need or replacement as we were out and about speaking to people.
"Everyone on the Maghull Labour Action Team is local and we all know the area very well, but some of the new postal deliverers aren't and neither are most of the main parcel courier services.
"There's more and more new postal deliverers in recent months and weeks, since the privatisation of Royal Mail. So decent, readable, road signs are now essential.
"One of the signs was simply in need of replacement because it had become weathered, but the other, which had been an older design, was missing all together, which makes me assume that it had been stolen for scrap.
"So what we need are two signs for the residents of Hodder Avenue."
Cllr Owens said the team has requested the new signage from Sefton Council.
Cllr Owens said: "As John says, the privatisation of Royal Mail and the changes to the postal service means we have new postal delivers. Decent signage is therefore crucial.
"I have put the request in to Sefton Council and they have assured me they will look into the matter.
"We will hopefully see new signs installed sooner rather than later."
