MP: Build bridge at cross­ing

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

SEFTON Cen­tral MP, Bill Ester­son has re­peated his calls for a bridge to be built at the “no­to­ri­ous” Fisherman’s Path level cross­ing in Formby.

Mr Ester­son has been call­ing for the cross­ing to be re­placed with a bridge since the sad death of Yas­min Jones and re­peated his calls in a let­ter to the head of Net­work Rail, Mark Carne.

Bill Ester­son said, “This is a pop­u­lar and well used rail­way cross­ing but it’s been clear since the sad death of Yas­min Jones, that a bridge should be built as soon as pos­si­ble.”

“It is right that the cross­ing has now re-opened but I have again to­day called on Net­work Rail to build a bridge as soon as pos­si­ble.

“Safety must come first and the fact that Net­work Rail say this cross­ing is the most dan­ger­ous in the north of Eng­land shows that they should be do­ing more to make sure the bridge is built.”
