A41 – Chester Street, Birkenhead – Improvement Scheme Consultation

“A new segregated off-road cycle lane / improved footpath will be provided along the east side of the A41 – Chester Street, improving safety and the connectivity of the Wirral Circular Trail Route. To the north, via existing on and off-road sections of the Wirral Circular Trail, cyclists will be able to connect to the Priory Trading Estate and, via the promenade, onwards to Morpeth Wharf, Wirral Waters Tower Road development and the John Moores Lairdside Training Centre and new Maritime Hub at Tower Wharf. To the south, cyclists will be directed to the Turbine Business Park, the Business Park and employment along the Rock Ferry trading estates, including the John Moores University Maritime education and training facility.

The existing Puffin crossing directly adjacent to the Rock Park McDonalds Restaurant will also be upgraded to a new cycle friendly Toucan crossing that will serve and connect directly into this new link.

By offering a high quality alternative to using the busy main A41 carriageway, Mersey Tunnel approach / exit roads and a long section of road tunnel, all of which are particularly unattractive to cyclists; this new facility is expected to greatly improve safety, usage and connectivity. Evidence shows that attractive walking and cycling routes can also increase the attractiveness of the Business and Retail Parks and other trading estates to inward investing businesses.”

Any objections (together with the grounds on which they are made) or expressions of support, may be made on-line by Monday 25th September 2017 at www.wirral.gov.uk/highways (“Submit comments, questions or objections about new highway schemes in Wirral”) quoting the scheme reference number DC-STEP-1718-1
