Active travel proposed route: Lea Green to Whiston Hospital
The Lea Green to Whiston Hospital Active Travel Route is proposed between the Linkway (at the junction with Elton Head Road) and the hospital, where it will link into a proposed route, which will soon be under construction.
It will run along Elton Head Road (from Linkway to Rainhill Road), past St John Vianney School, and at The Black Horse Inn the route turns into Ellerslie Avenue, continuing along Two Butt Lane to Holt Lane. The route then runs along Holt Lane, Longview Road and Longview Avenue before linking to Whiston Hospital.
The proposals include speed reductions, improved street lighting, new pedestrian crossings (which can also be used by cyclists) and cycle lanes to protect users from general traffic.
