Merseytravel’s (part of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority) General Purposes Sub-Committee meeting on the 15th October 2015

I’ll start by declaring an interest as I use the car park at Birkenhead North Railway Station regularly.

At a public meeting today of councillors on the Merseytravel’s General Purposes Sub-Committee officers gave an update on projects including an update on what was happening to expand the Park and Ride at Birkenhead North Railway Station.

A Merseytravel officer had the following to say about this, "Birkenhead North, that’s the extended phase for the Park and Ride. Members [councillors] will remember we had some extensive investment in there over a two-year period, around £5.5 million with what was the Park and Ride interchange and the bridge as part of that scheme.

This is the land that we agreed with Wirral that we would take forward for the expansion of the Park and Ride scheme and that scheme will straddle, will commence early next year and will run through probably for about a five or six month period depending on the contractor’s programme when we receive that back."

There are 266 car parking spaces at the Park and Ride at Birkenhead North Railway Station. The work, expected to start next year to expand the Park and Ride will increase this by a further 366 car parking spaces. An increase in car parking spaces will solve the current problem of over parking.

Merseytravel is expected to ask Wirral Council in the near future for a lease of the land for the Park and Ride expansion at Birkenhead North Railway Station to go ahead.

  1. G’day John

    I have sent two comments this morning and they are not here.

    Do we have an issue?



    • Hi James,

      This is the only comment the blog has received from you this morning (unfortunately).

      I can confirm that the other two comments you wrote haven’t been received by this blog.

      All the best,


  2. John

    Now had five or six goes



    • It’s ok, I’ve figured out what’s happened, the comments have ended up in a spam folder. Unfortunately I’m off out now but will look into it later.

    • It’s a certain word beginning with b and ending in d that’s resulting it’s ending up in the spam folder. If you could submit it without using that word, it’d be accepted.

    Here it is again…drumroll……… just……..

    “The Pretend Friend”

    Snoring ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    G’day John

    We can’t let them do it.

    We must stop them.

    Send some FOI’s.

    Get on to your contacts at Whitehall.

    You will have to LIE in front of the bulldozers.

    You could ask the lovely Leonora to do it for you.

    She can only say no before she inserts the camera…where no camera has been before….maybe.

    We will have to get a blue plaque on it.

    It is a Wirral Treasure.

    They can’t knock down the birthplace of “Ankles” just for a car park.

    He would be devastated.

    He wouldn’t accept the compensation.

    It would only be the much abused amount of £49,000.00.

    He would LIE in front of the bulldozers himself.

    That wouldn’t work though John they would just put a ramp up and park a hundred cars on the big fat so and so.
