Major Project

Better Roads


Over the next few years we’re spending £500m on Liverpool’s roads to make our city a better place to live, work and visit.

We’re improving key routes that are in poor condition and carry large volumes of traffic.  This includes road resurfacing and widening, junction improvements, changes to public realm such as new pavements, new signage and traffic lights and giving more of a priority to pedestrians and cyclists.  It not only make much needed improvements to the city’s roads, but will also significantly reduce the highways maintenance historic backlog, delivering major savings for the city in the future.

You can also track where repairs are taking place thanks to a new interactive map.

Funding for the schemes is coming from a range of sources including the City Council, the Department for Transport, the Growth Deal and Liverpool Commercial District BID.

Major schemes underway include the £10 million replacement of Great Howard Street bridge (see time lapse video below), and the £22 million upgrading of Great Howard Street itself to full dual carriageway.
