Liverpool city centre is set to undergo a “radical” £45 million transformation of its roads as part of council plans to make it more attractive to visitors.
Major new schemes include extending St George’s Plateau into Lime Street to create a “world class gateway experience” for those arriving by train and slashing The Strand from eight lanes down to a four lane tree lined highway.
The local authority says the Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme (LCCC) aims to “transform how people move around Liverpool city centre – by foot, bike, car, coach and bus”.
The plans will also see changes to Queens Square and Paradise Street ( Liverpool One ) bus stations and the creation of the city’s first dedicated coach park.
And there will even be new bridges across Canning Dock.
