Council ignore dangerous footbridge  in Southport

A number of local residents have raised concerns over the dangerous steps onVirginia Street Foot Bridge in Southport

A local resident said: “I find the steps onVirginia Street to be an accident waiting to happen with all the indents, lumps and now holes caused by the deterioration over time and the lack of maintenance.  I myself  have stumbled carrying 4 bags of shopping, what is it like for people struggling over these repaid deteriorating steps that may not  be as fit as myself?”

 “The steps should be repaired before someone has a bad accident”.

Cllr Maureen Fearn is aware of the issue but as usual nothing has been done to rectify the situation.
