UPDATE Southport Coastal Road Flooded

Heavy rainfall over the past couple of days has made driving conditions even more hazardous along Southport Coastal Road between Weld Road, Birkdale and Pontins of Ainsdale.

The flooding is much worse than reported last week with water now covering one lane for about 1/3 of a mile.

Contractors using heavy JCB diggers are currently trying to reslove the matter by working on the main drains on Southport beach.

Traffic lights have been set up and drivers are being warned to take extra care heading southbound.
