    Queens Road has now been turned into a pop up cycle lane. A no entry sign has been erected at the junction of Manchester Road. Access is possible by driving down Alexandra Road or Leyland Road.

    Work begins shortly on Hoghton Street.

    More lunacy, there is no logical reason for these pop up cycle lane changes. So you can't turn into Queens Rd from Manchester Rd but you can from Hawkshead St? What about from the other direction? Is it one way or no way? Totally illogical and unnecessary.

    Fully agree with you. You cannot drive down Talbot St from Belmont/Hollybrook either.(unless for access) and not a single cyclist to be seen. The daft thing is if cyclists want to go into town they have to turn into Duke St or Portland which don't have cycle tracks???? Also does this mean that cyclists will be fined if riding on the pavement - particularly in these areas? This is totally ridiculous in my opinion

    Now are Carers, District Nurses and Doctors cars to attend patients in their home or in nursing homes exempt. Or do the patients have to be denied treatment.

    No they are not exempt. It is illegal to park on a marked cycle lane. For those you mention they will need to park on a driveway, I think you'll find most if not all on that road have them, if not there are a couple of side roads within short walking distance.

    Why don't Sefton council put No Entry signs at the end of the Formby By-Pass, by the West Lancashire boundary sign on Southport Road and on Water Lane coming in from Preston.

    I'm sure I can save them a lot of time, effort and money by banning everyone from coming into Southport, as this appears to be their ultimate goal.

    Southport is no more - going to end up being Greater Bootle.

    Oh and remove the signs Welcome to Southport and the Christmas Lights and replace them with Welcome to North Bootle!

    What IF someone has ordered a Hackney or Private hire vehicle,how are they going to be able to pick these customers up,if it is only Buses and cyclists that are allowed on these routes ? There are quite a few Nursing homes,and a lot of elderly residents living down there,how are these staff or residents now going to be dropped off, or picked up ?......... Just glad that I don't now drive as a Private Hire anymore,as I have recently decided to give up doing so,after 30 yrs of doing the job,and the way that the roads have changed recently,thank goodness to be out of the job...

    Chronic and moronic stupidity! The lunatics have clearly taken over the asylum, if there was no Public Consultation then this is illegal and the residents can ignore it....

    Where did you get that groundless supposition from?? It isn't "illegal" and can't be ignored. Don't you think the Council might have checked it beforehand?

    Can I suggest the Council send an employee to count the number of cyclists using this facility in December to show that ratepayers are getting value for money.

    One of the London Papers mentioned that a fire engine was needed in a road which had barriers for cycle lanes. Residents cars were parked on either side of the road. The fire engine got stuck between the barriers and had to walk down that road.

    It appears the plan might be to clog up all the roads to encourage people to ride bikes - don't you think?
