Roadworks

Our roadworks list is updated weekly to help you plan your journey around the Liverpool area.

It includes details of road closures, events, highway improvement works and utility works at the point of publication but may not include closures or works that may be carried out at short notice.

Details of any emergency work that has a major impact on our road network will be published on Twitter @lpoolcouncil.

The two Churchill Way flyovers in the city centre will be dismantled over a three-month period between September and December 2019. Find out more.

Major planned projects

Over the next few years we’re improving key routes that are in poor condition and carry large volumes of traffic. Unfortunately, there will be short-term disruption but we’ll do everything we can to keep things moving.
