The road surface from Breck Rd (right at the corner of Breck Rd & Wallacre Rd)approaching right up to the roundabout is very very dangerous.

Searching cars and breathalising people, checking doc's tyres etc etc.

Re: Wirral Traffic & Travel Alerts - 10th Dec 2011 9:18am

Twelve Quays lift bridge out of action this weekend:

The lift bridge close to Twelve Quays ferry terminal, which links Birkenhead and Wallasey, will be closed this weekend to allow engineers to carry out repairs ahead of major works scheduled early next year.

The "A" bridge on Tower Road will be closed this Saturday and Sunday December 10 and December 11, to allow the works to be carried out.

Motorists will instead be diverted over Duke Street bridge for this weekend. Signs showing the diversion routes will be in place.

A four-week major repair programme on the lift bridge is scheduled to begin – weather-permitting – immediately after the New Year when motorists will again have to divert to the Duke Street crossing.

A Wirral Council spokesman said: “We apologise for having to close the bridge this weekend at such short notice and we regret the inconvenience it will cause.

"However, the works are necessary to allow the bridge to continue to be used safely until the full programme of repairs, which is planned to begin the first week in January, can take place.”

Re: Wirral Traffic & Travel Alerts - 7th Feb 2012 9:58pm

A water pump operated by Network Rail and situated in the tunnel under the river bed was leaking onto the tracks.
the water was above the running rails and blew the cables feeding the signals and track circuits, also set fire to 8 insulating pots which grease the wheels as they pass over them.
Network Rail had to wait until the water receded before being able to get to the faults.

Not Merseyrail's fault although they always get the blame!
Posted By: Anonymous

Re: Wirral Traffic & Travel Alerts - 7th Feb 2012 10:20pm

The insulator pots support the live rail. Nowt to do with greasing the wheels. If there's a pumping fault it'll be at Shore Road Shaft or Mann Island. Unlikely all pumps would fail at once. IF a pump fails, an alarm comes up. On a visit to the drainage heading some time ago. I was told by the fitters that it takes four hours for water ingress to reach the 3rd rail at river bed. Game over! The track circuits would short out first as the water "bridged" the running rails. All signals to red and train stops "up".

The drainage heading is under the main tunnel. The highest point of the heading is under the lowest point of the main tunnel. Water then gravitates down to sumps at Shore Road or Mann Island. Bonzo sized Sulzer (or they were) "down the hole" pumps bring it to surface drains.

Here endeth the lecture !! Is anyone still awake ?
The above bumf was gleaned a few years back. Also in some equally old books I have. Things could have changed of course.
Thanks gopher for the heads up on this.
Posted By: gopher

Re: Wirral Traffic & Travel Alerts - 7th Feb 2012 10:35pm

They checked the pumps, all were working ok, but there was a big enough hole in one of the pipes to allow the leakage over night so no warning lights or alarms registered in the control room, so the water built up and was noticed by the driver of an empty stock train at 05.15, trains were allowed to carry on under caution but the level reached the rails and then Bobs your uncle.NO TRAINS

Church Road, Higher Tranmere, Birkenhead.
Closed between Seymore Road and Thompson Street due to large crane in road demolishing one of the few remaining buildings.

NO advance warning and NO signed diversion.
Prople are just having to find their way down through the little back streets. Many are getting lost and turning around.

It is hard to tell if this is planned or emergency work, but either way, it seems badly managed.

Such a shame really, they were probably the only butchers that were open til 10pm. Surely this row is the last of the buildings waiting to be demolished. Council arson crew in again last night? laugh

Why they wait till the holidays are over and schools back to start ripping up and blocking roads.

Big signs up around arrowe park advising traffic chaos and find alternative route starting Friday 30th August for 4 days.

We found an alternative route (Storeton Lane) only to find that will be closed 3rd September for 1 day and then Whitehouse lane closed for a day.
