    THIRTEEN years of doing nothing by a Labour government, he means. Culminating in a phone call to the Sefton Chief Exec saying the project was not going to go ahead in Spring 2010. Due to Labour's spending cuts after their banking crisis.

    In 2010 the project was immediately reviewed by a Lib Dem Minister who decided it was a priority and another Lib Dem Minister announces the final go-ahead this week. Funny how these facts escape the Pyongyang press release.

    I've always said it and will continue to do so, Southport is one of the most inaccessible areas in the UK, poor road links both in and out. Half an hour to reach a motorway.
    Don't you mean half an hour bumper to bumper through Scarisbrick every week end. Where are they ALL going.

    Agreed!We would all love this..but most of it would be in Lancashire and our neighbours say no.They have decided to fiddle around with Ormskirk instead.

    I have heard, and it is probably a rural - if that is the equivalent of an urban - myth that an Ormskirk By-pass was shelved due to World War II.
    Not sure it was shelved due to the War, but seems to have petered out over time - see following link!

    The person who told me - and the article shows how stories can evolve - said that it was part of a larger Lancashire countywide scheme that included the Formby and Rainford By-passes that pre-dated motorways.

    Southport's geography means that roadwise it will remain a bit of a cul-de-sac.

    Vin Garbutt's song The Bypass Syndrome springs to mind.

    Meant to include this link.

    http://bbc.in/RNdH0S

    Which shows that the archeologists have already been digging in the area.

    You're having a laugh! How about most of Wales and Scotland, Eastern England.There are huge areas that are a lot more than half an hour from my motorway!

    A very appealing idea!

    or a toad or a lizard. !!! This road should have been built 40 years ago with a flyover at switch island, but thanks to all the nimbys it's cost not just £££s but excess pollution and traffic caused by queuing traffic on the feeder roads, same with the Ormskirk bypass.main artery roads into Southport both from the M58 and the A570 are single carriageway with accompanying speed restrictions through built up areas and the coastal road is totally inadequate, should have been widened to dual carriageway years ago.
