Liverpool’s Edge Lane road improvements ‘to progress soon’

A project to improve roads and local infrastructure in the Edge Lane area of Liverpool is to move ahead within six months, according to those responsible for the development.

Plans to widen Edge Lane into a dual carriageway, thereby improving access between the city centre and M62, will be carried out in six months when demolition work on local buildings is completed, reports the Liverpool Daily Post.

The road improvement is set to cost £57.7 million and comes as part of a project which is also set to see a number of modern new homes built along the refurbished lane.

As part of the scheme, trees are also set to be planted in front of apartments on the south side of Edge Lane to create a boulevard-style aesthetic.

Divisional regeneration manager Paul Howard said: “The scheme is aspirational, there’s no doubt about it. It’s a real gateway to the city.”

Last month, the Liverpool Echo reported that the Stanley Dock bascule bridge is also set to be renovated and reopened for use by motorists after previous plans to demolish the structure were reconsidered.
