HAPPILY, Mr Bill Peters (Mailbox, February 19) now describes road engineering between Seacombe Ferry and Tower Roundabout no longer to be “buffoonery” as he previously suggested, but as an “excellent scheme”.

Unhappily, he recycles an old saw: “If it’s not broken don’t fix it”.

The “excellent scheme” is in fact to complete this section of the Wirral Cycle Way in the nationwide pursuit of sustainable transport.

Far from “broken”, it is being newly-created.

Engineering works ancillary to its creation also removed the hazard of vehicles parked at an angle, having to reverse into an oncoming traffic lane.
