West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has secured commitment from Lancashire County Council for junction improvements at Fiveways in Ormskirk.
After yet another road traffic collision at the junction, MP Rosie wrote to both Lancashire Constabulary and Lancashire County Council urging immediate safety improvements.
LCC, as the local Highway Authority, have responded to MP Rosie’s calls committing to assessing the junction and implementing some changes this year, including road markings and signage.
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“Whilst long overdue, I am pleased that Lancashire County Council have finally accepted that change is needed at this Fiveways Junction.
“LCC tell me that they are in the process of identifying changes to road markings and signing to assist with manoeuvres through the junction and to back-up the changed speed limit on the A59. This work will take place in the autumn.
“Separately, I am still pursuing the Home Office to push through their approval for red-light and speed enforcement cameras, where the two sets of improvements will complement each other.
“For too long we have witnessed crash after crash, injuries and lives lost at junctions on County Road. Enough!
“I will continue to campaign for road safety improvements at this junction and on this stretch of County Road.”
