Paddington Village roadworks underway

The Wavertree Road corridor (Irvine Street / Upper Mason Street) will be closed in both directions from 30th July until 9th September 2018 whilst Morgan Sindall undertake sewer connection works for the Paddington Village development.

The alternative route will be via Wavertree Road, Marmaduke Street, Edge Lane and vice versa.

Road-users are encouraged to consider using alternative routes and different means of transport, in and out of the city.

Paddington Village is the city council’s £1 billion flagship expansion site sitting at the eastern gateway of the city centre’s Knowledge Quarter.

It has been earmarked for 1.8m sqft of science, technology, education and health space that will create a destination of choice for primarily research, education, health and science related business and institutions.

To help people plan their journeys an interactive map has also been launched to allow people in Liverpool to discover when their road is being upgraded as part of a £500 million investment drive in the city’s highways network.

Councillor James Noakes, Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport and Highways, said: ‘Paddington village is an important regeneration scheme that will bring a wealth of new industries and new jobs to the city.

“There will be disruption and delay caused by these roadworks, however they are absolutely essential to the development of the Knowledge Quarter and Liverpool as a city. You can use our new interactive map to check for other roadworks across Liverpool to help plan your journeys.”
