Maghull Labour Action Team has welcomed the installation of interactive road signs on a busy local road.

 

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

 

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's Labour leader Cllr Maurice Byrne, who is also the party's candidate for Molyneux Ward at next May's local elections, said he was delighted the signs were being installed.

 

Cllr Byrne said: "I am delighted that thanks to the extra funding from Maghull Town Council these signs are going to be installed.

 

"There are far too many vehicles that come off Switch Island onto Liverpool Road South at too great a speed.

 

"Considering there are schools nearby and there's lots of young people crossing the road throughout the day, this road can obviously be 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."

 

Cllr Byrne said he hoped the hi-tech signs would make motorists check their speed.

 

Cllr Byrne said: "Because many vehicles coming off Switch Island are coming off the motorway, it is far too easy not to realise just how fast you are travelling.

 

"These signs will help motorists realise their speed and slow down making what is a very dangerous road a lot safer."
