Council wants your view on Great George’s Road improvements
A consultation has launched to allow people to have their say on a series of fantastic improvements to Great George’s Road in Waterloo.
Sefton Council have recently explored a number of ways to regenerate facilities for pedestrians and cyclists along the A565, which includes improvements to the junction with Great Georges Road.
Works will include improvements to the Five Lamps crossing to increase safety for pedestrians, while the addition of a separate cycleway aims to provide a safe route for family cycling.
Cllr John Fairclough, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said: “Following on from our declaration of a Climate Change Emergency, we have been committed to doing all we can to reduce carbon emissions.
“One way of helping us meet our carbon reduction target and to improve air quality is to encourage people to walk and cycle rather than use their cars.
“We want to make an environment where walking and cycling is more enjoyable, fun and the best way to travel.
“The aim of the works will look to improve accessibility between Crosby Coastal Park and Litherland. Funding for the scheme will come through the Liverpool City Region’s Sustainable Transport Enhancements Programme (STEP).”
Residents of Waterloo and those who use the A565 will have a chance to have their say on the proposals until Monday, March 2.
Three public events will take place next week to allow people to see the proposals face to face. These are:
- Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre (Feb 4, 17:00-20:00)
- Waterloo Community Centre (Feb 6, 11:00 – 14:00)
- Crosby Library (Feb 7, 12:00 – 16:00)
