Cycle protest planned in Liverpool on Friday

A cycle protest is set to take place this Friday at 9.30am outside Mann Island Pier Head in Liverpool.

It will be in response to a series of CGIs images released by Liverpool City Council showing a ‘radical’ revamp of Lime Street.

However, Twitter users have said there is a lack of cycle lanes in the plans, and have planned a protest as a result.

The redesign includes a new public square outside Lime Street station and an expanded plateau outside St George’s Hall.

The scheme is part of a wider £45 million programme that the council has said will “transform connectivity” and how people move around Liverpool city centre.

A public information exercise is set to take place at the Central Library on 12th December from 10am to 6pm.
