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.

Upper Central is a newly branded area of Liverpool, covering 56 acres in the middle of Liverpool city centre – the area is to be the subject of a draft masterplan to create an international standard gateway site to a £2bn flagship regeneration scheme.
