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
https://liverpool.gov.uk/wdrcycling

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.

Cycle route blocked for arms fair

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.

Regent Road cycle lane update

The Regent Road cycle lane was almost completed 18 months ago, with the serious omission of the planned traffic lights on the Bascule Bridge.The narrow width of the bridge meant the cycle lane could not continue across it, and the lights were to allow cyclists to cross the bridge safely.Without the lights, cyclists have to…

Cycle lane scrapped and Liverpool loses funding

In a stroke of true genius, Councillor Daniel Barrington had the inbound pop-up cycle lane on West Derby Road removed before waiting for evidence from his own review. The government’s response was to halt funding to Liverpool for other active travel schemes. To prove that irony is not dead, Councillor Barrington is Cabinet Member for…
