Highway Maintenance Update: COVID-19
The Council’s Highway Maintenance service are working to deliver and prioritise services across the borough in accordance with the latest Government advice. Over coming weeks this may mean stopping some works and services to ensure we can prioritise emergency, safety critical and key activities.
This is a developing situation and one which both the Council and its Contractors will be monitoring carefully and responding to as appropriate. The current situation is having an impact on our ability to deliver services at the same capacity and so, our workload will be subject to change with a focus on actioning works and enquiries that are deemed urgent or an emergency, first and foremost.
We would ask that when reporting issues to us, you consider the nature of the enquiry and its importance given the circumstances. If you are awaiting a response to an enquiry, this may take longer than originally anticipated to which we can only apologise.
Sefton Council is responsible for managing and maintaining the local highway network, including pavements, cycleways, street lighting, traffic lights and traffic calming.
Our responsibilities also include road adoptions, public rights of way and enforcing parking restrictions.
We also work with the Merseyside local authorities and Merseytravel on the the Local Transport Plan.
