  Proposed Major Changes to Roads in Liverpool
Posted by: Nwales Bus - 18/06/2019 11:10 - Replies (2)

Major changes are proposed to buses in Liverpool as the council re develope the road network across the city

According to Liverpool Echo, half of the city centre’s bus routes will be affected

Quote:Routes affected
7, 10B, 12, 13, 14, 14A, 14B, 14X, 14&14A (Halton), 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 20X, 21, 61, 75, 76, 78, 79, 79C, 79D, 80, 80A, 82

Withdrawn routes
55D, 82C, 82D, 86D

Quote:Close to half the bus routes into Liverpool city centre are set to be overhauled in a radical move that will affect thousands of travellers.

The major new proposals, announced by Merseytravel this morning, are set to come into force next January - but passengers will get a chance to give their views on them from today until later this summer.

It's believed that around 11,000 passengers a day will be affected by the move, which is happening in tandem with the council's £45m Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme - and could see passengers forced to walk further distances to get to their daily destinations.

It is proposed that a free shuttle bus wil operate between Queen Square and Liverpool One during the distruption

A consultation is now online on Merseytravel website until 2nd August

  Liverpool City Centre Roadworks
Posted by: N271CKB - 25/04/2019 21:06 - Replies (7)

According to Merseytravel site, number of services are to terminate short.
This includes number of cross river services.
Be interested to hear others experiences.
This short section of road can cause a lot of disruption to services, esp to people with a lower service level.
