Urgent Warning as Ravenmeols Level Crossing has been left in a dangerous condition for pedestrians


We have now been told that the barriers have been fixed so are safe but work still continues on the track so the road is still blocked off in both directions.


Formby residents are urged to exercise extreme caution following a critical safety concern at the Ravenmeols Lane level crossing.

Authorities have issued a warning after the barrier malfunctioned, leaving it stuck in the open position.

Pedestrians are advised to be vigilant as there are currently no barriers or warnings on the pavement, potentially leading to a hazardous situation, especially for those distracted by mobile devices or music.

The incident has been reported to both the police and Merseyrail, with efforts underway to address the issue urgently.

In the meantime, the road is blocked with red and white barriers to prevent vehicle access. However, the lack of barriers for pedestrians poses a significant risk, particularly for schoolchildren and commuters. Residents are urged to take extra precautions when crossing the area, and parents are advised to ensure their children are aware of the potential danger.

Updates will be provided as the situation develops. Stay safe, Formby.

This unexpected closure is anticipated to result in heavy congestion during the morning rush hour, compounded by the ongoing road closure on Kirklake Road due to Utility Repair and Maintenance Works, following the discovery of a third sinkhole. Kirklake Road is expected to remain closed in both directions until at least May 21st.

Alternative routes are Andrew's Lane, Sefton Street and Ward Avenue emerging as the alternate routes to Formby Bridge, residents are advised to plan their journeys accordingly.

Those affected are urged to consider alternate routes, such as diverting down Victoria Road level crossing, or to allow extra time for school runs and work commutes. The community awaits clarification on the reasons behind these closures and hopes for swift resolution to minimise inconvenience.

Updates will be provided as soon as more information becomes available.
