Maghull Town Council Labour Councillors urge town residents to t

Patrick McKinley and Maurice Byrne

 

Maghull Labour Councillors are urging everyone in the town to take part in a Sefton Council survey that could lead to much of Maghull becoming 20mph zones.

Sefton has launched the survey as part of proposals to create 20mph zones throughout the borough.

Last year Maghull Town Council Labour Councillors Patrick McKinley and Maurice Byrne consulted with residents along Hall Lane after residents complained about speeding traffic.

Maghull Town Council's Labour leader Cllr McKinley said growing numbers throughout Maghull are complaining about traffic speeds.

Cllr McKinley said: "A number of Maghull Town Council councillors conducted a survey in Hall Lane last year because residents had been in touch with concerns about the dangers of speeding traffic.

"The residents on Hall Lane were overwhelmingly in favour of speed restrictions and a new limit was installed there.

"The Sefton Council survey gives everyone in Maghull the opportunity to have their say on a massive issue for our town and it is only right that everyone gets their say."

Cllr McKinley said speeding traffic is an issue that is regularly brought up with him.

Cllr McKinley said: "My daughter has a young child. When she visits, it becomes even more evident that we have a problem with speeding vehicles throughout Maghull.

"But I will be very interested to see just what response the Sefton survey gets here in Maghull.

"I have received my consultation document already. But anyone who has yet to receive it, should call Sefton Council on 0151 922 4040."
