Feeback on Maritie Corridor Improvements Consultation – We Asked, You Said, We Did.

A key stakeholder and public consultation were held on the Maritime Corridor Improvements scheme in two stages. Both stages used the same information, with key stakeholders being offered a meeting or in person visit to discuss element of the plans in more detail as required.

Stage 1 – Focused on key stakeholders identified by the Council, and those who have an interest in the land on which the scheme will be delivered, either through a freehold, leasehold, or statutory undertaking. This began August 2023 and is ongoing.

Stage 2 – Wider public engagement. This ran from Friday 22nd September to Thursday 26th October 2023.

The Maritime Corridor area reaches from Switch Island to Netherton Way (A5038), including Ormskirk Road (A59) and Dunnings Bridge Road (A5036). Our plans are focused on improving transport links throughout the area by improving junctions and introducing better walking and cycling routes along Dunnings Bridge Road (A5036), Netherton Way (A5038), Bridle Road, Park Lane, Heysham Road and Atlantic Park Drive. We want to make it easier for vehicles, cyclists and those walking to move around the area and utilise employment, educational and retail / leisure opportunities.
The Improvements were split into six sections on Your Sefton Your Say:

•Dunnings Bridge Road Improvements
•Park Lane Improvements
•Vesty Road to Deltic Way Improvements
•Netherton Way Improvements
•Bridle Road Improvements
•Heysham Road Improvements

Each of the improvements had visuals designed to make them easily understandable. All images had alt text to allow for interaction with screen readers. The information was also available in hard copy format on request. The Council emailed all Protected Characteristics Groups as identified by the Councils Equality and Diversity Officer. We also contacted local cycling and walking and community groups.

As a result of the available funding for the improvements, they have now been split into three phases.
