Woodvale Junction Walking and Cycling Improvements

Closed 7 Apr 2024

Opened 11 Mar 2024


Sefton Council have plans to improve the Woodvale junction. This is the area where the Coastal Road / Liverpool Road / Moor Lane and the Formby Bypass (A565) meet. 

This junction forms part of the A565 Formby Bypass route for those walking, cycling, and driving through the wider area. The Council want to make the roads and paths better for everyone and help connect the north to the south of the Borough of Sefton.

The aim of these improvements is to help connect communities to wider opportunities across Sefton. We will be creating safer crossings on the junction and improving the paths for those walking and cycling.

We will be providing new cycleways on Formby Bypass / Southport Old Road to link up with the current routes. Our plans on the Coastal Road will also help to link with and upgrade the wider National Cycling Network (NCN 62) route, which forms part of the Trans Pennine Trail.
