Dave Wheatley started this petition to Sefton Council

Pop-up cycle lanes have been established creating safer cycle routes across the town. Most of the local media attention has focussed on the view that reducing on street parking will impact on local businesses without presenting any evidence for this. This had led to demands to remove the lanes. The case for cycle lanes providing safer routes to encourage more people to choose healthy sustainable travel over polluting cars which are contributing towards climate change is never given a thought. Those of us who want safe, cleaner and healthier travel which doesn’t damage the environment should also be heard. Unless people can feel safe when they use the roads to cycle then many will be deterred and not have the confidence to swap the car for a bike.

Even now I know there are many who prefer to cycle into town and then catch the train to commute to Liverpool or Manchester rather than pump carbon dioxide into the air on congested roads.

If you would rather save the planet than a couple of minutes walk then let your voice be heard!
