This is the latest update available from the local BBC traffic news. (This update added to the blog at 2.18 pm)
A565 Merseyside - A565 Formby By-Pass in Formby closed and slow traffic in both directions between the B5424 Liverpool Road junction and the B5193 Orrell Hill Lane junction, because of an accident involving two vehicles.
There's been an interesting exchange on Twitter about the proposed 20mph speed limit in Formby. A closer examination of these and the references shows that the original scheme in the Piecefield Road area is to be extended.
Here's an extract from the Twitter conversation:
All roads in Formby except Liv Rd, Altcar Rd, Church Rd and Southport Rd to be made 20mph - good for safety and the environment
