Active Travel Fund

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority has been awarded £7.8m from the Active Travel Fund, with over £1m allocated to St Helens Borough Council to make walking and cycling safer, more accessible and more enjoyable.

We are proposing walking and cycling improvements to include:

  • Provision of new cycle lanes, physically separated from traffic
  • Cycle tracks, separated from pedestrians where possible
  • Reduced speed limits
  • Safer crossing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists

The project builds on the proposals for the Lea Green scheme (St Helens Southern Gateway, ERIC).

This consultation is now closed. Thank you for taking part in the survey. The results have been analysed and we have published a Consultation Response.
