Multi-million pound boost for Wirral road improvements

Funding from the Liverpool City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement, will be used ‘to carry out essential works on the highways infrastructure in Wirral to ensure that residents and visitors can continue to travel safely’.

Wirral Council said resurfacing work is set to start in late April, with the majority taking place over the summer months, and warned of ‘some disruption to road users’ while these essential works take place.

All works will be carried out in the most environmentally friendly way possible as crews and contractors will work closely with suppliers to minimise the council’s greenhouse gas emissions and reduce waste.

Councillor Liz Grey, chair of the authority’s environment, climate emergency and transport committee, said: “As a local authority, we have a legal duty to maintain roads within the borough and this work requires continual investment.

“The roads earmarked for improvements are prioritised based on condition surveys, as well as reports carried out by highways inspectors, residents and councillors.

“Repairing roads across the borough is essential to keep Wirral moving – whether that be by bike, on foot or in a vehicle – and our annual programme is a major investment to deliver on those expectations and keep our residents safe.

“We know that often roadworks delay people’s journeys, and we apologise for that, but the end result is better, safer surfaces.”

A list of roads to be treated as part of this year’s programme will confirmed shortly.
