Birkenhead Road Active Travel Scheme

Wirral Council would like feedback on proposals to introduce a package of highway measures and environmental improvements along Birkenhead Road, Seacombe Ward.

The proposals include:

  • An upgraded segregated pedestrian footway and cycle track along the east side of Birkenhead Road (between Kelvin Road and Seacombe View).
  • Removal of existing vehicle parking bays along the east side of Birkenhead Road.
  • Provision of new vehicle parking bays along the western side of Birkenhead Road (between house numbers 30 – 56), improving safety by removing the need for residents and visitors to cross the road to access their vehicles.
  • Pedestrian and cycle priority crossings at side roads.
  • Improvements to pedestrian crossing points at dropped kerb accesses along the west side of Birkenhead Road.
  • Removal of existing bus bay on the east side of Birkenhead Road, opposite 100 Birkenhead Road, to be replaced with a Bus Stop Bypass facility opposite 76 Birkenhead Road.
  • Introduction of Traffic Regulation Orders (double yellow lines).
  • Revision of existing Traffic Regulation Orders (double yellow lines) along the western side of Birkenhead Road, to enable vehicle parking.
  • Removal of trees from the eastern side of Birkenhead Road to allow for footway and cycle track upgrades. New trees will be planted at Corbyn Street and the Seacombe Ferry area.

A photograph of Birkenhead Road as it is now, and a visual representation of the proposed scheme are shown in the images below and the Project Board in the Documents section on this page. Detailed concept plans, showing the extent of the proposals, are also available to view in the Documents section on this page.
