Upgrades to key Liverpool road completed

Road works to a busy street in Liverpool’s Walton area have been completed, meaning the road has been reopened to drivers five weeks ahead of schedule.

Repair work on Rice Lane has concluded this week following three months of maintenance, which necessitated the closure of one of the two lanes, reported the Liverpool Echo.

The £1.2 million project was funded by Liverpool City Council and Merseytravel and has been designed to enhance road quality and safety, as well as to improve public transport.

A spokesman for the council said: “We would like to thank businesses and residents for their patience and co-operation while this work took place.”

He added that a small amount of work will still continue on the road, but assured drivers that two-way traffic flow will no longer be affected.

Earlier this month, it was announced by Merseytravel that the Mersey Tunnels are to receive a £5 million revamp in order to make them safer and better to drive through.
