Highway Improvements - Much more to doResidents and your councillors have been campaigning for some considerable time over one of Rainhill's worst traffic "hot spots" - RAINHILL ROAD. Replacement street lighting is well on the way and further issues are being progressed. The Coach and Horses corner has been identified as an accident black spot, indeed fatalities have occurred there in the past. We have successfully campaigned for TRAFFIC LIGHTS to be installed there in the very near future.
There continues to be a major problem with double parking and indeed vehicles parking so far on the pavement that it causes major problems for the poor sighted and prams with young children in them. We are working closely with the police over these issues.
WARRINGTON ROAD in the Village Centre continues to clog up at various times due to traffic numbers but we believe that the resiting of the bus stops has had a major knock on effect to the overall problem. We collected well over 100 names on our petition before Christmas which called on MerseyTravel to relook at the sitings of these bus stops. Some of you more elderly amongst us will remember the bus stop which used to be directly outside the Victoria public house which was forced to be changed under police authority because of the dangers it caused. To date, MerseyTravel have not sent a detailed response back to us.
