2.0 Proposed Formby Area Accessibility Improvements

2.1 The project area ....... has identified a number of areas where the pedestrian environment could be improved. Formby town centre is accessed by a number of previously constructed walking and cycling routes, this proposal is to improve accessibility for the mobility impaired, improve safety and support the local economy.

2.2 The proposals for the Formby area are in various locations and include:

  • The construction of dropped crossings and tactile paving in order to improve accessibility for the mobility impaired to Formby Railway Station
  • At a variety of sites in the village.
  • At the roundabout junction of Freshfield Road/Duke Street/Formby Bridge/Kings Road, it is also proposed to widen and improve the pedestrian refuges.

2.3 As there are no properties directly affected by this scheme no public consultation was required.
