Penwortham Councillor Keith Martin has launched an e-petition calling on the Department of Transport for a new River Ribble crossing.

The petition, signed by 11 people so far, states: “With two growing Enterprise Zones on opposite banks of the River Ribble and already congested river crossings, it is evident that a third crossing is required.”

It claims relieving congestion in this way would reduce dangers to pedestrians and would improve air quality.
