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.   The Made to Move Merseyside campaign, aims to challenge the current political administration to adopt a 15 point plan and truly commit to transform the region for those living within it.

There is also a petition you can sign and encourage your local councillors and MPs to sign: https://www.change.org/p/1000-made-to-move-merseyside

    Thank you so much for taking the initiative. A template letter is a great idea – it will hopefully help to overcome our inertia and contact the candidates prior to the upcoming local elections.

    A list of candidates for Liverpool can be found using this link to the Liverpool council website:
    http://liverpool.gov.uk/media/1357490/statement-of-persons-nominated.docx

    Unfortunately this is a word document, and only lists postal addresses. Other councils in the Liverpool City Region also have to provide a similar list of candidates; please add any links you might find in a comment.
