Made To Move

We all have the right to travel safely but when it comes to walking or cycling on Merseyside roads you or your child are more likely to be killed or injured than in any other area in the country.  In addition to this, traffic, a major cause of air pollution, is killing 725 people per year in the region.  It also causes ill health, linked to heart disease, stroke and cancer as well as asthma and other respiratory illness.

On Thursday 25th April (7pm-9pm), we will be launching the Made to Move Merseyside campaign, this will challenge the current political administration to adopt a 15 point plan and truly commit to transform the region for those living within it.  The evening will consist of talks with short films giving an overview of how dangerous it is our roads, the impact a poor road environment has and how we can begin to change this.

We need to build our roads around people, communities and the desire to live without fear of harm or poor health.  Based upon Manchester’s proposal to create a £1.8 billion infrastructure plan, Made to Move Merseyside presents an alternative to the current policies causing the loss of so many innocent lives.
