Melling Labour Action Team has been working with their Knowsley counterparts as well as police on both sides of the border to tackle an ongoing issue with a problem pathway.
Molyneux Labour Action Team leader Marion Atkinson and ward Labour councillor Tony Carr met with Knowsley Park Ward councillor Tony Brennan to discuss Satinwood Crescent residents' complaints about the pathway which leads from the estate through to Knowsley.
The issue was also raised with the area inspector in Sefton and their counterpart in Knowsley.
Cllr Carr, who lives in Melling, said he was encouraged by the meetings.
Cllr Carr said: "Marion and myself had a very positive meeting with the councillor on the Knowsley end of the path. Together we are working towards resolving the problem.
"This includes adding regular police patrols to the area to deter any antisocial behaviour as well as to catch anyone who is up to no good.
"The police on both sides have been fantastic and taken the concerns on board. They inform me that they are in discussions as part of cross-border policing and they have increased patrols.
"This is good news for the residents on both sides of the path."
Marion said she was pleased that at long last, the residents' concerns were being addressed.
Marion said: "The residents on Satinwood tell us that this has been an issue for many years. Cllr Carr was only elected last May, but already the Labour Action Team are making in roads on an issue which has been affecting lots of people for along time.
"It is an issue we are addressing and one which we will continue to monitor to make sure that it is being dealt with."
