    The existing cycle lane measures on Talbot Street, Chapel Street, Tulketh Street, Hoghton Street, Wesley Street can be fully enforced from July 29th again after the previous TRRO expired in February.

    Queens Road will be closed to traffic excluding cyclists, buses and emergency services.

    A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “A temporary traffic regulation order (TTRO) for Queen's Road, Southport will come into effect from July 29.

    "The order will prohibit all south-westbound vehicle traffic from Park Road, as well as north-eastbound from the junction with Manchester Road.

    "This temporary order does not apply to busses or pedal cycles and is done so in conjunction with a number of cycle lane installations in the town centre.

    "Motorists are advised a diversion route is in place via Alexandra Road and Leyland Road."

    Good news for all who cycle and particularly welcome as such great cycling weather about. ;-)

    N.B. Just needs the local Police to keep an eye on the behaviour of motorists now, to ensure 100% compliance. Because last time around, a proportion were deliberately running the NO ENTRY signage, presumably hoping by doing so, to make the scheme unworkable and get it scrapped. A tactic previously/still employed (along with vandalising signage) in 20mph areas - but to zero effect!

    The following is a quote from the Forum w*nker, posted on the Ormskirk traffic lights thread.
    “No mention of cyclists in the title of this thread, despite my re-reading it to make sure. Just vain attempts in the replies by the anti-cycling mob, to draw attention away from measures designed to curb all those speeding light-running motorists - duh!”



    Just like this has immediately been turned into an “anti -motorist” thread. Not only is he a w*anker, he’s a hypocritical w*******.

    Oh come on Sniffy, even you must be able to see the pic was taken during construction of the new lane, hence all those cones. You wouldn't want bikes colliding with them, now would you?

    A town destroyed thanks to you and your ilk!
    A handful of parking spaces removed, to let people cycle in safety. And let's not forget, had motorists respected riders roadspace and kept 1.5metres+ away from them - none of this would ever be necessary.....In other words, motorists have brought this on themselves - duh!

    Nope been past it many times and just like your cranium is devoid of brain cells these cycle lanes are devoid of cyclists.

    Yet more utter, unsubstantiated tosh from the forum's hypocrite.

    Such cycle lanes are the result of a government decision and their use, if agreed by local councils, applies to the whole country, not just your delusional mindset.

    DUH...!!!

    The town would die, just at a time when substantial investment is creating a whole new and successful future for the town.

    Whatever guise you adopt, it's the same utter drivel from our resident cycling (or is it plural?) fanatic.

    Exactly guise , same style same rhetoric same person just different accounts trott on PNP .

    Well, being the site's motoring guru, you would say that! Whereas, if you rode a bike regularly on today's roads, you'd be more than aware of how badly riders are not infrequently treated, at the hands of uncaring motorists. If you want to carry on believing we're getting 1.5m clearance, every time a motorist overtakes, I'd suggest digging your old bike out and taking a spin or two around town, to see for yourself!
