Liverpool’s new cycle lanes will ‘fill gaps’ in network – transportxtra
Liverpool City Council is seeking public feedback on plans to install three segregated cycle lanes. The measures, equalling 6km of continuous cycle routes, would fill gaps in the existing network to “overcome significant barriers to cycling”, said the council.
The lanes would connect to other new routes such as the Princes Avenue cycleway in Toxteth and complement schemes such as Lime Street in the city centre.
The proposals are key to the new £3m phase of the city’s Active Travel programme, which will also feature new footpaths and pedestrian crossing facilities. It also includes improving 30 access points along the Liverpool Loop Line, which runs 16km through the city from Halewood to Aintree.
