    First became known some months ago. Not surprisingly, there was a very unhappy initial reaction from a large section of the town's population.

    By the time they've finished meddling it will be like trying to find your way around Skem. Why not compulsory purchase homes on some main roads and have dual carriageways criss crossing the Town.

    I suppose brainless has been badgering his Councillor again they'll do anything to get rid of him.

    Ooh no. We don't want our neighbourhoods to be liveable. Down with that sort of thing.

    Blocking streets will be great for vandals and other anti social morons, a nice secure location they can gat away from without fear of being tracked.

    The theory may sound great, but sadly many pedestrianised areas are no go areas at night thanks to being handed to the more moronic portion of the population.

    If the local residents are so enraged by this proposition why did only 14% respond to the survey carried out by Sefton?

    The Council have done a letter drop and online survey only 14% of people responded. https://eyeonsouthport.co.uk/news/ar...hoods-20211011

    There's no proposals for pedestrianisation.

    Barring through traffic comes a very close second.

    They are proposing “modal filters” that effectively cut some of these roads in half, for example Sefton Street will be accessed from Duke Street up until the modal filter and the rest of Sefton Street can only be accessed from Scarisbrick New Road.

    Is it only me who thinks this could cause potentially lifesaving delays to the emergency services.

    Because they know it’s pointless. As you well know, Sefton Councillor’s based in Bootle don’t consult, they dictate, and we all know that from the moment they “proposed” these badly and ill considered traffic schemes, they were a done deal.
    Only time will tell, but when the already congested Preston New Road and Cambridge Road have their width reduced by 50%, combined with all the extra traffic that will be created with the new housing development at Balmoral Drive, getting into and through Southport will become impossible. This, in turn will further decimate the already struggling retail business in the Town Centre, but hey, it not all bad news, the few cyclists will have the whole run of the Highway Infrastructure to themselves.

    A small price to pay if those half a dozen cyclists get a free run of the streets.

    On a positive note they are proposing a number of “Cycle Locking Points” so that the half dozen cyclists can safely lock up their bikes while the Fire Engines and Ambulances try and navigate the “modal filters”

    Which could be seen as an advantage for families living in those street/s. Because ridding their neighbourhoods of unwanted through traffic, obviously reduces the risk of a passing motorist carrying out a snatch-and-grab 'kid'napping.

    At end of day, the only people to be adversely affected by the scheme, are motorists who use these streets as rat-runs. I'm sure emergency services are smart enough to amend their maps, to ensure they enter a street by the correct end. Imo, less cars through a street, means lessening the chance of people getting knocked down/knocked off.
