A5036 Port of Liverpool access
Creating a new road between Switch Island and Princess Way to improve access to the Port of Liverpool and bypass the existing A5036.
The A5036 between the Switch Island Interchange and Princess Way is a key commuter route, as well as the main access connecting the Port of Liverpool with the motorway network.
The road currently suffers from severe congestion, which causes delays, safety issues, and environmental concerns. The Port of Liverpool is set to become even busier with the on-going development of Liverpool2, which will add to the pressure on the A5036.
The proposed bypass will take traffic away from communities by Church Road and Dunnings Bridge Road, reducing congestion at junctions and along local roads.
Improving the A5036 will make journeys safer, quicker and more reliable as well as improving local life and regional economic growth.
The A5036 Port of Liverpool project is known as a Nationally Significant Project (NSIP). This means that we must apply for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to proceed with the project.
