Last week, I met with the Council’s Highway Manager, and he has agreed to the following:
Paignton Road: replace the road sign which has been missing for over a year. I did request a new sign over twelve months ago, but was told the council had better things to spend their money on. Since then the Chief Executive spent £850,000 on a new fire escape – if he can have a fire escape I can have a road sign!
Spring Vale: a request has been made by a resident for a ‘SLOW’ sign to be painted on Harrison Drive. The sign will be painted this week along with other road markings in conjunction with the new traffic light system. Hopefully drivers will take note and make it easier for drivers to exit Spring Vale.
Broadway Avenue: the present illuminated ‘Give Way’ sign at the junction with Belvidere Road will be replaced. The current one is badly faded, rusty, isn’t illuminated and has deteriorated quite badly.
Groveland Road: articulated lorries making deliveries in Wallasey Village are ‘cutting through’ Groveland Road to get to the motorway and getting stuck – apparently ‘sat nav’ takes them that way. Electronic tags will be put down to monitor the traffic to find out exactly what is going on.
Grove Road: a similar problem is happening here. There’s been an upsurge in heavy lorries and vehicles travelling along Grove Road. They’re delivering to shops on the prom, it would be quicker and easier to go along Bayswater Road. Again, electronic tags will be put down to monitor the traffic to see what’s happening.
Winchester Drive: the road is in a bad condition with very deep potholes. The potholes have already been repaired as a matter of urgency and the road has been put forward for possible inclusion for ‘micro asphalt surfacing’ (that’s town hall speak for tarmac).
Stanley Road: potholes will be repaired as part of the programmed work in the near future.
Leasowe Road/Wallasey Village: ‘road lining recovery’ (town hall speak for white lines) will be repainted in each direction from the roundabout. They’ve become faded and in some instances, ignored by drivers.
If there are any issues in your road, please let me know by emailing me : firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the ‘contact Leah’ page on this website.
