182534Photo #182534A protected cycleway has been added to Fender Lane, on each side. This is excellent. The bus stop is good too, the layby has been kept but pushed outward by the new cycle lane, which cedes priority to crossing pedestrians.

Wirral Council are to be commended on this excellent facility.

182439Photo #182439An obvious missing link. A short simple connection here between this new estate and Lansdowne Road would enable residents to walk/cycle quickly and easily straight into the centre of Monton Green. Canal Bank is an awful road to walk and cycle along.

A missed opportunity. Plus, there's a park nearby.

175467Photo #175467This nuisance bridge is difficult for almost all users to cross. Difficult with a bicycle. Impossible with a tricycle or wheelchair. It's inaccessible, with steps on either side. People cannot pass by eachother, leading to long queues on nice days.

It's high time this bridge was replaced with something much wider, so all users can cross.
