A trio of temporary cycle lanes in Liverpool, created during the Covid-19 pandemic, are set to be made permanent thanks to a multi-million pound funding boost.
A report to Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet is recommending an allocation of £10.95m from the Active Travel England be accepted and invested in enhancing the three routes into fully segregated active travel corridors.
The designs for each scheme, which will not require the loss of any traffic lanes, were subject to a pubic consultation last Autumn with feedback largely supportive for the interventions.
The Cabinet report also shows that Active Travel England funding, which will be drawn down from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, has also been set aside for an upgrade to an existing cycle lane in Toxteth.
