This morning, as one of the four Wirral Councillors who sit on the Merseyside Integrated Transport Authority (Merseytravel) I attended the first meeting of the Wirral MAP for this year. I have been privileged to chair the MAP for the last two years, and was delighted to be re-elected, unopposed, as Chairman of the Wirral MAP for a third term.
My colleague, Leah Fraser attended as an observer and asked questions about the long awaited and much needed Town Meadow Rail Station. She requested that a much wider consultation be commissioned by Merseytravel to try to attract new users, which, would hopefully go some way to making the station cost effective. She was also assured that the land for any station had been secured. I have been lobbying for this station for many years, as have others, I thank Leah for her questions and support.
