West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has welcomed confirmation of a new bus stop on Birch Green Road between Hallcroft and Harsnips in Skelmersdale, improving bus services for local residents.
MP Rosie raised residents’ concerns over the accessibility of bus stops in the Birch Green area with Lancashire County Council. She has now received confirmation from the council, as the transport authority, that the new bus stop is to be installed.
MP Rosie said:
“The additional bus stop on Birch Green Road will be welcomed by local residents using the 313 bus route.
“If we are to encourage people to use public transport more frequently then it is important that services are accessible. Installing additional bus stops is one way of achieving this.”
