Liverpool City Council are undertaking statutory consultation on a experimental traffic regulation order (TRO) for measures associated with the Lime Street Connectivity Scheme.
The experimental TRO for the Lime Street Connectivity scheme starts on 3rd October 2022 and will be in effect until 2nd April 2024.
This traffic order is aimed at promoting active travel, reducing congestion and pollution, and improving safety along this key corridor. The outcome of the consultation will determine the amendments that would be made before the proposals are made permanent.
All traffic – except buses, taxis, private hire vehicles, bikes and access for loading/unloading – will be prohibited from heading into Lime Street (between London Road and St George’s Place) and on St George’s Place.
Other measures that have been introduced as part of the scheme include installation of two-way segregated cycle lane in Lime Street (between Coperras Hill and London Road), a bus link in Lime Street (between St George’s Place and Skelhorne Street), coach bays, loading bays, relocated disabled bays, a new bus stop outside North Western Hotel and reducing the speed limit in the area to 20 mph.
Access to St John’s Car Park and Holiday Inn will be maintained via Skelhorne Street and Elliot Street.
