Potholes Banished From Sefton Park

Work is underway on the first phase of a £6 million scheme to resurface roads in and around Sefton Park.

A total of 4.5km of pothole-ridden carriageways will be dug up and formally ‘adopted’ by the city council.

Previously the roads were not part of the council’s highways network and there was no legal obligation to repair them and they could not spend money from their general highways budget improving them.

The work will be carried out in two phases - April to June 2012 and April to June 2013 - in order to make sure it does not clash with events taking place in the park during summer, and avoids bad weather in winter.

Assistant Director of Regeneration Mark Kitts said: “Sefton Park is hugely popular with local residents and visitors and they have long complained about the condition of the roads because they were unadopted.

"This scheme will enhance the restored park and improve the experience of the thousands of people who use it on a regular basis and who attend the many events which take place there.

"We are carrying out a comprehensive resurfacing of the roads which means they will last for a long time, particularly as we are adopting them which means they will be regularly maintained."

Site works have already taken place to determine the amount of reconstruction work that is needed.
