    Southport MP Damien Moore has received several complaints from local businesses concerned about the damage being caused by the new cycle lanes, and also about the loss of £137,000 income from the suspension of the pay and display bays on Hoghton Street in Southport.



    Over 1,000 people have signed a petition against the scheme in just 24 hours:

    Bootle’s loony left Councillors will be delighted to hear that a petition has been raised against this hair brained scheme. They will be even more delighted to know that it’s having a detrimental effect on Southport businesses. RIP Southport, Bootle’s destruction of the town is a step closer.

    It won't happen. Sefton Council used Government money to establish these cycle lanes and route. They would need more Government money to remove them, which they won't get.

    Yes, the funding came from central Government, but not the idea on how, or execution of how the money was consequentially, actually spent.

    Is that the same MP who is against pay and display charges?

    MP urges council to scrap cycle lanes which cost £137,000 in lost revenue a year

    Why is it Southport's MP [& his predecessor] spend more time scrutinizing Sefton Council than he does [/Pugh did] holding the government to account in Westminster?

    A case of look busy, the voters might be watching?

    cycle lanes …cost £137,000 in lost revenue

    While some of those displaced motorists may opt to cycle into town,
    I anticipate many will find some other parking space, possibly even one which generates revenue for the Council.

    As far as I can see, most motorists are ignoring the No Entry sign by Hesketh Park, including IRONICALLY... a Sefton Council Catering Van!

    Even their own employees are ignoring it.
