182534Photo #182534A protected cycleway has been added to Fender Lane, on each side. This is excellent. The bus stop is good too, the layby has been kept but pushed outward by the new cycle lane, which cedes priority to crossing pedestrians.

Wirral Council are to be commended on this excellent facility.
