Maritime Corridor Improvements Scheme

Closed 11 Apr 2021

Opened 1 Mar 2021


Help Us to Develop a Scheme to Improve Travel to and from the Maritime Corridor

Sefton Council are improving our streets and transport network to support our Sefton 2030 Vision, throughout the whole of the Borough of Sefton.

The Maritime Corridor reaches from Switch Island to Netherton Way (A5038) and links Atlantic Park to the wider region and the Port of Liverpool.

This scheme involves improving junctions on Ormskirk Road (A59), Dunnings Bridge Road (A5036) and Netherton Way (A5038) as well as the local road network.

Sefton Council is looking at improving five key junctions to make them better for all traffic as well as people walking and cycling.  We are also looking at how best to improve and link up walking and cycling routes to provide safe and seperate routes for active travel (walking and cycling) throughout the corridor.

The Martime Corridor Improvements scheme is at a very early stage. Initial consultation with key stakeholders is showing positive support for the scheme and its main objectives. Sefton Council has not secured funding for this scheme, however hope to secure future funding.

Now is therefore a key time to engage with the wider public and local residents and businesses. Now is the time to have Your Say.
