 Better Roads



Victoria Street is undergoing works as part of Liverpool City Council’s Liverpool City Centre Connectivity (LCCC) Scheme.
 
This is about developing the city centre to make it a more attractive location to get about, particularly on foot or if you cycle.
 
Victoria Street will see widened pavements, tree planting and other public realm features running from North John Street to the Queensway (Birkenhead) Tunnel.
 
The work is scheduled to take place between February and November and will mean changes to where you get on and off the bus.
 
The work will be carried out in phases and bus services will be affected differently during each phase. We will publish the changes to services here as soon as details are available. Please also note that dates may change but we will update this page as soon as they are confirmed.
 
A summary of the changes to bus services is below. 
 

Phase Three: 8 April - 19 May


Buses will not be diverted but will be unable to call at stops VD and VE on Victoria Street; or SA and SB on Sir Thomas Street. Please see below for where to catch your bus during phase 3.
