    Default Allerton Road (Mossley Hill) improvements

    Has anyone heard of the proposed improvements being made to Allerton Road? I've heard Tescos are funding it?

    I understand Tescos as part of the planning permission process for their giant store extension, are donating some ?700,000 towards the improvement costs of Allerton Rd. This is enough to remodel the road from Allerton Library to Queen's Drive. It involves removing the central reservation and widening the side access roads. See attached image of the plans. Overall it looks a great improvement.

    The rest of Allerton Rd to Penny lane will be completed in another phase when the money is available.

    I would like to think that the Library would benefit.

    I was thinking about a larger range of good literature

    Just check the library catalogue and order it from whatever library has it in stock. You'll never get a large range of books in a small district library.

    Default "Allerton" in Bloom

    The flower containers are the result of work by the "Allerton in Bloom" group. Nothing to do with the council. Only trouble is the shops on Allerton Rd are not in Allerton but rather in the Mossley Hill district of what was once Wavertree and technically still is I suppose.

    I was told that there are problems with the gas mains under the areas that are earmarked for improvment

    Lots of digging going on. End of the road between Barclays bank and the old cinema site is dug up and a lot of the central reservation is being changed.
