Active Travel Protest Liverpool

Saturday 25 September 2021
12 noon

In eight years, 1118 cyclists and pedestrians have been killed or seriously injured in Liverpool. That’s one cyclist or pedestrian per road kilometre. While some new cycle lanes have been installed, they have not created a coherent network, while the dismantling of the West Derby cycle lane sends the wrong message about who is given priority in road safety planning.

The protest is to commemorate those injured and killed and to demand safer travel.

This is how it works: cycle or walk from across the city towards the Pier Head. Meet friends on the way, become a group, and show that you are cycling or walking for a reason (feel free to decorate your bike or bring a poster). Wear a purple top. Bring bells. All meet at the Pier Head at 12 noon on 25 September.

Show the city that we exist, that we matter and that we want to be able to use the roads and pavements safely, and that there are many who would love to use active travel if only – if only active travel was safe. For us, for our kids, for the climate, for our future.

Confirmed speakers – Councillor Tom Crone, Dr Kay Inckle, Councillor Jay Roberts and Councillor Kris Brown.

    I will be away so cannot attend, but wish you much luck with this event. Things are definitely getting worse for cyclists in Liverpool. And the Uk is going backwards not forward in this regard. Please tell Liverpool City Council to STOP building new roads: for civilisations sake put the effort into new cycle ways instead.
