Southport Cycle Town

Lunch time and Cllr Shaw and I went to visit the open day for the cycle town project. I am pictured with Kew Ward Councillor Fred Weavers who really must be credited as the politician who has driven this excellent project through.
This week residents around Portland Street have been invited to Linaker Street School Children's Centre to view an exhibition about the scheme. In particular the project aims to turn Portland Street into a East/West cycle route into town.
There are a lot of other initiatives as part of the Cycle Town which we will return to-in the meantime it should be reported that there was good turn out of interested residents. There was an enthusiastic team of officers who were on hand to answer question alongside Fred and his ward colleague Mike Booth.
