NEWS ROUNDUP: Covid hitting communities & stalled roadworks

 

Your latest news update for the region 

 

St Helens' most deprived residents are almost two and half times more at risk of dying from Covid-19 with the virus 'hitting poorer communities much more'. The borough's Director of public outlined the situation and the efforts in place to combat the spread of coronavirus during St Helens Borough Council's People's Board meeting at the Town Hall.

 

Liverpool City Council has written to Prime Minister Boris Johnson calling for more funding to help pupils catch-up as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The letter to Boris Johnson, from Cabinet member for Education, Employment and Skills, Councillor Tomas Logan, was requested by the council's Education and Skills select committee.

 

Liverpool City Council is set to appoint a number of highways contractors to complete five schemes which had stalled, following the appointment of administrators for its original contractor VIAM.

The five schemes, which have a combined £4.9m of work left to complete, are at:

• Byrom Street
• Walton Lane
• County Road – A59
• Kingsley Road
• A565 – North Liverpool Key corridor
