We are delighted to hear that Liverpool is set to get new temporary cycle lanes in response to COVD19 lockdown. We understand that two routes are already signed-off and set for launch, and that they are being delivered as part of a wider package of post-virus public realm improvements for Liverpool.
We would love to see a temporary – and permanent – cycle lane running through Wavertree and along Picton Road. We could get all the way from Netherley through Woolton into town (and beyond!) on this route. Following the path of the 79, it goes through the University of Liverpool campus and we have plenty of students that would use it – as well as plenty of keen cyclists in general.
We think our de-commissioned bus lanes would make perfect bike lanes!
Let us know what you think in the comments 🙂
*** UPDATE ***
We are so pleased to report that Wavertree is one of the districts chosen to host a temporary cycle lane as part of LCC’s response to the COVID lockdown. Our route is the ‘University Route’, Number 6 (getting our kicks on Route #6!) and as reported here by the Echo will run through: Gateacre – Woolton Road – Wavertree – Lawrence Road – Crown Street – Myrtle Street – City Centre.
We look forward to using the new bike lane when it arrives and to future progress in creating safe and permanent cycling provision.
