• Conor welcomes the commencement of work on Pasture Lane

    Residents in Rainford will be relieved that works on Pasture Lane have finally commenced.

    I first approached the Government for help just a few days after the flooding caused serious damage to the road and forced its closure at the end of 2015.

    Local people have had to endure 20 months of waiting because Tory Ministers in London wouldn’t release the funding needed to make these repairs.

    I pay tribute to the local community for their persistent campaigning on this issue and thank St Helens Council for its role in securing funding.

    I will continue to monitor the works over the following weeks to ensure they are completed to a high standard and on time.
