The results of a public consultation on the proposals for the Better Roads Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme, which aims to make walking and cycling the first choice for short journeys in the city centre, have been published.
The aim of the consultation was to find out what people thought of the proposals for the scheme in their preliminary design stage. The areas that are being considered for improvements include Dale Street, St George’s Plateau, The Strand, Canning Dock, Brownlow Hill and Lime Street Station.
The public consultation saw officers present the proposals at different events in the city. An online survey was also live for a month and received 838 responses.
These responses indicated that while the majority of people welcomed the planned improvements, there was also concern that the scheme could have a negative an impact on traffic flow within the city.
Recommendations based on the findings of the survey were passed to the designers for consideration in the next review of the proposals.
The comments and feedback received will also be considered when the final set of proposals for the scheme are presented to the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority for funding approval later this year.
