Positive result for free access for emergency vehicles
I would like to thank all the Wirral globe readers for their support in signing my petition presented to Merseytravel to allow all emergency vehicles through the tunnel free of charge at any time.
My campaign was reported by the Wirral Globe in August and boosted the petition to 967 signatures.
I am pleased to see that common sense has prevailed, and that the right decision has been reached.
Last year according to Merseytravel figures the cost to the emergency services was approx £185,000.
Considering the constant cuts that threaten the emergency services this money can now be better spent supporting emergency services to the people of Wirral.
