New road safety measure for
Liverpool hot spot
A new pedestrian island is to be
created on a traffic hot spot in South Liverpool. Liverpool City Council
is to install the traffic calming measure on Mill Lane, Wavertree, which is a
heavily used link road to Edge Lane.
The 6m long and 2m wide "pedestrian refuge" is to be funded
through a neighbourhood fund. The new pedestrian island is estimated to
take 4 days to complete and will see the installation of temporary traffic
lights on Mill Lane during construction.
Councillor Ann O'Byrne, Deputy Mayor of Liverpool, said:- "Mill Lane is
unusually wide and exceptionally busy and this has long been a matter of concern
for pedestrian safety. With its proximity to Edge Lane and Wavertree High Street
we've been looking at a number of solutions for the local community and am
delighted at this outcome. This pedestrian island will provide residents with a
safer passage while still maintaining traffic flow."
Liverpool City Council is currently investing more than ₤250m to improve
Liverpool's road infrastructure through the Better Roads Programme. For
