Skelmersdale Sport Centre road signs taped over
...now you don’t
ROAD signs directing motorists to the former Skelmersdale Sports Centre have been taped over.
The signs at various locations across the town were the subject of some ridicule by councillors as they pointed to the fact the sports centre had been demolished.
West Lancashire Council has since been taped over the signs.
Skelmersdale North Councillor, Neil Furey said: “This is typical of the Tory-run council and the patched-up services we currently receive here in Skelmersdale.
“This was an opportunity to update road signage in the area but instead they have chosen to patch-up signs with tape.
“Is the council now so poor that it cannot afford to renew road signage?
“Once again this action will serve as a reminder to Skelmersdale residents that this Tory-run council neglected Skelmersdale Sports Centre which ultimately led to its closure and demolition.’
