 Strand Corridor Scheme

​Strand Corridor SchemeStrand

The Strand Corridor is the most important stretch of highway in Liverpool. The Waterfront is part of the City Centre, not an adjunct to it and these links are critical to the economic and cultural success of the city region. The Strand carries high levels of vehicle movement and the scarcity of good quality, convenient crossing points for people on foot means that it separates rather than connects the city to its Waterfront.


The Great Streets programme aims to; restore connections; to link the Waterfront back to the city at strategic points with key public realm improvements along its length, upgrade of  pedestrian crossings,  slowing traffic speeds and improving the pedestrian journey into, and across the city. It is vital that key linkages across and throughout the Waterfront are strengthened at strategic locations.  The southern half of the Waterfront presents considerable opportunity for new residential development, close to Liverpool Marina and making the most of the water spaces. The central segment presents opportunities for more visitor attractions, such as leisure facilities. The northern half of the Waterfront will blend with Liverpool Waters.
