Formby Labour councillors are campaigning for safety improvements at roundabouts in the town.




Cllr Nina Killen and Cllr Catie Page said they had been contacted by residents who were concerned about walking and cycling safety.


The pair met with the Cabinet Member for Highways Cllr John Faircough to discuss "continental style" zebra crossings for the Cross House and Formby Bridge roundabouts.


Cllr Nina Killen said: "The issue of safety for pedestrians and cyclists is raised with us often. We live here so we have the same concerns particularly with regard to children and young people walking and cycling.


"Both the Cross House roundabout and roundabout at the bottom of Formby Bridge are really busy with traffic and pedestrians and it can be difficult to cross. Most motorists are very considerate and give way to pedestrians but we wondered if there was anything that could be done to help pedestrians within the council's limited budget.

"We met with the Cabinet member and discussed continental style markings on the road signifying a pedestrian crossing, but without the belisha beacons which can of course attract considerable cost.

"The Cabinet member and Traffic Services team have committed to assessing whether this is possible as we look forward to the outcome of the surveys."


The councillors also discussed cycle lanes with the Cabinet member.

Cllr Killen said: "We would be keen to see more cycle lanes in Formby as we want to encourage more active travel. The width of many roads in the town make cycle lanes difficult to implement but we support any schemes that make cycling safer and more attractive."
