West Derby Road Consultation
Liverpool City Council has a proposal for a temporary cycle route on West Derby Road, to replace the one previously removed.
Closing date for comments Friday 7th January 2022
The consultation is badly designed, with only the options of either agreeing with the plan or disagreeing with it.
The design for crossing Sheil Road creates dangerous condition for cyclists.
Cyclists join West Derby Road on a cycle lane segregated with wands and into a bike box at the traffic lights.
The width if the cycle lane is not marked, it's impossible to know if it will be a safe and useable width.
Cyclists are now to the left side of left-turning motor vehicles with obvious potential conflicts. A cyclist carrying straight on is in danger of being hit by a left-turning motor vehicle.
Across the other side of the junction a segregated lane is marked as 1.25m wide, which is below the standard for cycling next to fast moving motor vehicles.
The junction needs dedicated traffic lights for cyclists and a cycle lane of 2m width.
As it stands, the only response to this consultation is to disagree with the creation of this cycle route.
Hall Lane is in Sefton, Merseyside and this route links Hall Road and the coast, Gormleys Iron Men, to Little Crosby and beyond in both directions, it used to be a dirt track bridleway but has been resurfaced and widened, a nice handy little route.
Lawrence Road was meant to be pop up cycle lane 6, but the LCC never got to it. We are looking at the road and what could be done to make it more cycling and shopping friendly.

The cycle route along the river past the ACC convention centre has been blocked for the Arms Fair. There are no signs for an alternative route. It’s probably best to give the area a wide birth, but it is possible to just go around the ACC.
