  • Roadworks underway again on Lord Street

    Ollie Cowan

    ROADWORKS have appeared once again on Lord Street... just months after the road was resurfaced.

    Dukes Ward Councillor John Pugh recently described the need for five more days of roadworks for ‘essential maintenance’ on the road as a ‘fiasco.’

    Last October, a project was undertaken by Sefton Council to resurface the whole of Lord Street in four stages.

    Council chiefs used black tarmac despite widespread criticism from local residents and visitors to the town that it was replacing the boulevard’s ‘iconic’ red tarmac.

    These latest works are taking place at night from 6.30pm to midnight, and starting on Monday, for five working days. The works are ending each evening at midnight, followed by a site safety procedure by 1am.

    Pedestrian access to shops and amenities will be available at all times, as well as access for emergency vehicles. Diversions will be in place via Duke Street, Victoria Way, Esplanade, Seabank Road and vice versa. Works nearing Eastbank Street and Nevill Street junctions will be signposted accordingly.
