Security bollards will go up to protect grass verges in Maghull, it has been reported.

According to the Champion, Maghull councillor Charles Walker was advised that concrete security bollards would be the best measure to implement in order to stop motorists cutting the corner at a junction in the town, destroying grass verges.

There has been a similar problem at another area of the town, where posts and bushes were planted to protect the verge.

After contacting Sefton council about his concerns, Mr Walker was told by the authority's Neighbourhoods and Investments Department that security bollards would do the job.

However, it looked unlikely the scheme would go ahead, as it was thought the expected £500 cost could not be met.

But thanks to Maghull Town Council and Sudell Ward agreeing to split the cost, the security bollards will now go ahead.

Recently, it was announced that security bollards would go up around a play area in Offenham. People had been driving over it and ruining the turf, the Evesham Observer reported.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800420779-ADNFCR
