Why not save the Southport Pier Tram and extend the line?

QUESTIONS are being asked after Sefton Council opted to "Scrap" the Pier Tram as it is deemed too costly to maintain it for the amount of cash it generates. The Tram has been one of the flag ship symbols for the re-development of the resort and cost so much to install in the 1st place! Sefton MBC said:- "It is just too costly to maintain and the remodelling will help to reduce wear and tear on the structure that is constantly exposed to the elements, thus increasing the Pier's longevity." Some have now asked if the money spent on this modern day "folly" should be best saved via using it in another way, such as extending the lines to run onto Lord Street, and/or along the prom to the park and ride. Another option being asked is:- "would it be able to be sell it to a private operator to run and maintain?" So what are your views on this issue? Should it be saved or scrapped? If you have any thoughts, or views on this issue, please do email us today, via:-
