Regent Road closed for
emergency gas repairs
A major Northbound route out of
Liverpool City Centre is closed until further notice for emergency gas repairs.
National Grid have asked the City Council to shut the north bound carriageway of
Waterloo Road / Regent Road, between Bath Street and Paisley Street with immediate
effect due to a suspected leak. National Grid will be working 24 hours a day and
7 days a week to repair the leak.
Drivers are being advised to allow extra time for journeys and consider
alternative routes because the closure will lead to significant delays around
the area, particularly at peak times.
Diversions will be signed and are available via:- Leeds Street, Vauxhall Road,
Commercial Road and Sandhills Lane or Paisley Street, Waterloo Road and Regent
Road for non HGV traffic only.
Motorists are being warned that the alternative routes are already extremely
busy due to the closure of Great Howard Street for bridge replacement.
The Southbound Carriageway heading into the City is not affected.
