URGENT ACTION REQUIRED! This has been an ongoing issue since Dec 2020. It's now the end of March 2021. We have seen elderly people trip and there is a school nearby where children can get injured as well. Legal action by those living on the street soon will be taken against the council if one other person gets injured. There are at least 5 elderly people living on this stretch of Sefton Park Road, this is now unacceptable and the hole is getting bigger. It's not just a few loose slabs anymore, it's a pothole that is getting bigger and bigger since the issue has not been dealt with earlier.

  • I've just been informed an order ( is this superior to a request) has been sent to ETM to investigate and make safe (whatever that means, some more cones or a proper repair?)
