A5036 Park Lane
We’re upgrading the Park Lane junction with A5036 Dunnings Bridge Road to deliver cyclist and pedestrian crossing points on all four of its arms, creating easier and safer journeys for everyone.
Park Lane footbridge was located at the junction with the A5036 Dunnings Bridge Road in Sefton. Following an incident in October 2022 in which the bridge was struck by a vehicle it had to be demolished for safety reasons.
We’ve since completed a feasibility study into providing a replacement crossing at this location suitable for everyone in the community.
We've concluded that upgrading the entire junction to include new combined cyclist and pedestrian crossing points on all four of its arms will mean easier and safer journeys for everyone, including those with mobility issues.
We’re currently finalising our plans and will share further information over the coming months. We hope to start construction on the crossing next year. The current interim crossing will remain in place until then.
The permanent solution will ensure safe access is maintained over the A5036 for local communities.
