​City Centre Connectivity

City Centre Connectivity
Liverpool has a legible grid of streets at a scale that is appropriate for walking and cycling around the centre.

However, there are areas of the city that feel ‘cut-off’ from the City Centre’s activity and energy due to street layouts focused primarily on vehicle movement with walking and cycling secondary.  Work is required to review how movement responds to the major projects programme; notably the main retail area and the historic downtown district.

Corridors requiring treatment are indicated in the plans below and works could include; Improved Public Realm with High-quality surfaces which show continuation throughout the route,  appropriate sign posting, improved lighting, improved priority in favour of people walking and cycling, and segregation or dedicated cycle facilities where appropriate.

Promoting walking and cycling across the city has economic, social and environmental benefits including amongst others: an improved streetscape due to the reduction in car journeys; increased pedestrian activity which can drive retail opportunities; improved journey times; reduced requirement for parking; improved air quality; improved health and reduced carbon footprint.
