Approval expected for Liverpool transport scheme

A three-year transport improvement programme worth over £100 million is set to be approved by Liverpool Council tomorrow.

It will result in more money being directed into major highway works, including the Hall Lane by-pass, as well as public realm and cycling network projects.

The council’s executive board has been urged to give a green light to the programme, for which the council and Department for Transport have allocated £30.4 million.

It is expected that initial commitment will attract external funding from private and public sector bodies and that, in total, the programme will be worth £107 million.

Executive member for regeneration councillor Mike Storey said: "It is vital that we get the city's infrastructure right to support its regeneration and this programme will ensure that important schemes are carried out."
