Charing Cross and Grange Road Active Travel

We Asked

Wirral Council has received a £2.969 million funding package from the UK Governments Future High Streets Fund (FHSF) to make improvements on Grange Road, within the Charing Cross junction and on Grange Road West. The funding cannot be used for any other purpose. The proposed improvements were designed to provide better access and connection to the services in the area and improve road safety within the town centre.

Phase 1 consultation (found here) sought reasons for supporting and objecting to the proposals, with feedback considered in the design process. Following this feedback, a second phase (found here) of consultation was designed to give notice and detail of the Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO’s) required to make the proposals effective and collected feedback on these TRO's.
