Consultation on public realm improvements for Park Lane, Liverpool

Consultation on public realm improvements for Park Lane, Liverpool

Start date: 6th September 2017
End date: 21st September 2017

As part of a drive to improve pedestrian and cycling facilities in the city, we are proposing the creation of a continuous cycle route from the Baltic Triangle along Park Lane to connect with Jamaica Street.

The cycle route will connect the existing Radial Route 10 (from Otterspool) to the proposed Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme along The Strand. An additional link to the National Cycle Network Route 56 along Duke Street (via Forrest Street) will also be created. Pedestrians will benefit from upgraded footways and street lighting, as well as improved crossing facilities.

 The measures being proposed include:

  • Carriageway and footway resurfacing.
  • An upgrade of street lighting.
  • A high quality, segregated cycle tracks.
  • Improved bus stops.
  • An upgrade and slight relocation of the existing pelican crossing near Tabley Street to a modern PUFFIN signal crossing.
  • A new TOUCAN crossing near Forest Street.
  • Cycle access through the existing closure at Forest Street to join NCN Route 56
  • Direction signs to Upper Parliament Street and to the proposed Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme along The Strand via Pownall Street.
  • The introduction of waiting restrictions - no waiting at any time.
  • Shared use permit bays and pay and display parking bays.

These changes will be funded by Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Growth Deal, Sustainable Transport Enhancements Programme (STEP).
