Mayor announces vast network of temporary cycle lanes

A vast network of temporary cycle lanes are to be introduced in Liverpool to help kick-start the city’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson has today green lit a £2m package to introduce potentially up to 100km of pop-up cycle lanes along key routes into and within Liverpool city centre.

The programme of measures are also set to include new street furniture in the city centre to enable people to socialise safely at distance and ease the way for pavement cafes to operate once restrictions are lifted.

The move follows a review of traffic movements in the city on how best to support people going back to work as the government begins to slowly ease lockdown restrictions for certain sectors.
