Wirral Track Closure, Skyride, etc.

Wirral line closure: Major disruption starting January 2017:

See: http://www.merseyrail.org/news/network-rail-track-renewal-on-the-wirral-loop.aspx for information.  Whenever you travel across the Mersey by ferry or train for leisure or work, please fill in our survey form at: http://goo.gl/forms/IkDuWTskR5nxUm022.  We will then be able to provide Merseyrail of evidence of the demand for bicycle carriage across the Mersey, so will be able to hold an evidenced campaign for e.g. improved and more frequent ferry services at the time of the track closure or/and on-bus bicycle carriage.
