Roadside Interview Surveys taking place in Southport

OVER the last few days Sefton Borough Council have been helped by Merseyside Police in conducting roadside interviews to help them update the Southport Transport Model. The information collected on the questionnaires will be used by the Council for strategic road planning. "The intention is to get a more accurate picture of traffic conditions and how people travel in the area. The information supplied is used to plan the flow of traffic to and from a given location and is not retained in the model, once completed. Anyone who has a question about the survey should contact Sefton Council on:- 0151 934 4808. The contact for more information about the survey is Peter Hillsdon at the Atkins." a representative told us. Let us know your views about the survey and the way it is being conducted by emailing us to:-

High Winds snaps street light like a twig

QUESTIONS are being raised after a metal street lighting lamppost was brought crashing down on Victoria Way, Southport on Wednesday, 16 October 2013..

The winds had snapped the base of the lamppost, felling it like a tree, into the road below. It is reported that it just missed 2 cars as it fell. Also another lamppost lost its top in the winds that battered the coastline.

There were no injuries involved in either incident that we have been made aware of. A worker who was sent out to deal with the lamppost said:- "The met office said it was a bit breeze!" as we took the photograph.

Did you have any damage in the high winds or did they affect you? Do you think the Streetlights need to be checked more often?  Email us your views to:-
