Tunnel demanded for Liverpool Port Access

Tunnel demanded for Liverpool Port Access

Instruct Highways England to go back to the drawing board and review options for Port Acess Study to include a Tunnel option as part of the formal consultation process.

Why is this important?

The current proposals are short term and have negative impact on community health and well being of local residents particularly those living in the immediate vicinity of the A5036.

The current proposals also impact detrimentally on green space provision.

We do not believe the current proposals will alleviate the traffic problems for Port Access in the long term.

Highways England have failed to fully review the option of a Tunnel.

Metropolitan Borough of Sefton

Reasons for signing

  • Green space and peace and quiet is an essential part of life. The people of Netherton and Bootle have long suffered the ever increasing Noise and pollution brought about by heavy road traffic to and from the docks. There is an alternative to the road. There is an excisting rail route straight into Langton dock which could be renovated and upgraded thus, taking away the traffic from built up areas and preserving what little green space is left.
  • Impact on local people
  • This is wrong. Old tip unsafe to dismantle on huge scale. Bad for local people. Negative for the environment. Noise and emissions pollution. Taking away single green space in the area. If we were in the South, money would be found for a trains or tunnels.
