Liverpool City Region travel initiatives

Active Travel

The Active Travel initiative will benefit cycling and walking in the Liverpool City Region (LCR), by introducing more pop-up cycling lanes and more parking for bikes in the city centre and street bike storage solutions.

Find out more about Active Travel on the LCR website.

Green Sustainable Travel Corridors Project (GSTC)

Liverpool City Council is a delivery partner in The Liverpool City Region Green Sustainable Travel Corridors Project, which aims to deliver a series of cycling and walking upgrades on key corridors to encourage increased uptake in cycling and walking in the city region by June 2023. 

Find out more about the Green Sustainable Travel Corridors Project on the LCR website.

The GSTC project is receiving up to £8.65million of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities is the Managing Authority for European Regional Development Fund. Established by the European Union, the European Regional Development Fund helps local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations.  Visit GOV.UK for more information about the funding.
