Residents urged to back new road safety scheme in Wallasey

Last November, local Councillors wrote to residents advising them that the Town Hall had agreed to our request to act on the problem of speeding traffic on Sandcliffe Road.

This followed concerns raised by residents with Ian, Lesley and Paul and also by people visiting Harrison Park. This led to a meeting with the Council’s Road Safety Manager and his agreement to come up with proposals.

The Highways Department then wrote to residents on 18 December asking for their views.  Due to the Christmas period, the consultation period was extended.

The proposal, if implemented, will see ‘speed cushions’ installed on Sandcliffe Road as well as a 20mph zone on the road, and neighbouring roads including Smugglers Way and Danehurst Road. Associated road markings and signage will accompany these works.

The plan can also be found by clicking on the link below

If you have not yet given your views, please email streetscene@wirral.gov.uk quoting scheme reference - DC/TfG/1718/15d or ianlewis@wirral.gov.uk and Ian will submit your comments.

Councillor Ian Lewis said: "Several residents have suggested that speeding on Coastal Drive also needs to be tackled.  While that road is not included in this scheme, the Road Safety Manager has agreed to review whether action can be taken there, in the next financial year. 

"I'd urge any resident who supports the plan to submit their views as quickly as possible.  A scheme to improve parking on Sea Road did not proceed because, while many residents told us they wanted it, most did not reply to the consultation and so we could not demonstrate enough public support to justify the cost.
