PHASE two of Prescot Road improvement plans, including paving a section violet in memory of Violet-Grace Youens, is set to start tomorrow, Friday.

Motorists are advised that three-way temporary signals will be in place on Prescot Road from Friday, November 22 as phase two of a road safety improvement scheme gets underway.

The signals will be in place until Friday 29 November – excluding Sunday 24 November – during the hours of 9.30am to 3.30pm to allow upgrade work to be carried out on the existing uncontrolled pedestrian crossing point.

Upgrade work includes changing the tactile paving on the crossing to the colour violet in memory of four-year-old Violet-Grace Yoeuns from Eccleston who was killed as a result of a hit and run on the stretch of road in March 2017.

No road closures will be required for this work.

Then from Monday, December 2 to Wednesday, December 4, central hatching will be coned off to allow the installation of new traffic islands.

Traffic should be unaffected during this period.
