Bike Life survey published

Sustrans has just published its Bike Life survey. It shows that there is a significant appetite for cycling in the Liverpool City Region as well as the demand for more and better cycle routes.
69% of residents support the creation of safe, separated cycling routes to encourage more people to ride bikes more often, particularly for shorter journeys. Two thirds of all journeys taken in the Liverpool City Region are less than three miles, but right now, around 50% of these are still taken by car.
The survey is representative of all Liverpool City Region residents, not just those who cycle.

Riverside Drive Protest


Thursday 24th October at 3.30pm
At the pelican crossing between Priory Wood and the entrance to Festival Gardens

Liverpool Council has decided to push ahead with plans to construct a dual carriageway along the route of Jericho Lane, Riverside Drive and Sefton Street. LCC has declared a Climate Emergency, but building a road will lead to more car journeys and will generate more carbon emissions. Air pollution will worsen in the area around the road.

This LCC report from 2018 was not presented to the public at consulations in 2019: https://liverpool.greenparty.org.uk/news/2019/09/13/south-liverpool-road-plan/
