St Helens Borough Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)

What are the outcomes of the LCWIP for walking and wheeling?

We have focused improvements in three areas of the borough with some of the highest footfall: St Helens Town Centre, Earlestown Town Centre and Haydock Industrial Park.

St Helens Town Centre

As shown on the map below (click to enlarge), walking interventions for St Helens Town Centre range in type and cover most of the streets in the Core Walking Zone.

These proposals align with the adopted Town Centre Masterplan Development Framework adopted by the council in February 2022.

The aim of the proposals is to:

• Create a pedestrianised route from St Helens Central railway station and the Stadium through the town centre to St Helens College.

• Reduce traffic circulation and movement, this is achieved by rationalising bus movements within the town centre, whilst still supporting bus, taxi and cycle movements (as well as off-peak deliveries).

Full details of the network development process and the schemes shown are available in the St Helens Borough LCWIP (PDF) [14MB] .
