The scheme would improve the current junction at Windle Island with an upgrade of the current signalling and junction layout.

The scheme would see the establishment of controlled left turn links, signalised pedestrian and cycling crossing facilities at the junction and installation of SCOOT traffic system to optimise capacity. The junction is a key strategic point in the Liverpool City Region road network, being the crossing point of the A570 and A580 East Lancs Road (one of the main routes into Knowsley and Liverpool), as well as the B5201 crossing the junction. The junction exceeds capacity daily, especially during peak periods leading to congestion as well as delay for motorist/bus services and freight. The scheme is identified within the third Local Transport Plan for Merseyside and is on the Strategic Freight Network for Merseyside.
