The Reasons are:

Liverpool Street between Albion Way and Oldfield Road is a key corridor in terms of transport and regeneration and is likely to undergo significant change in the coming years in terms of its use, function and character. Investment in the corridor is needed to support and act as a catalyst for this transformation. The proposed changes to the corridor ensure that it can safely and effectively accommodate all modes while supporting greater levels of walking and cycling and being future proofed for the anticipated changes that the redevelopment of the area will bring. It will also improve the attractiveness of the corridor and act as a catalyst for regeneration.


Options considered and rejected were:

Do Nothing, this would mean people travelling in this area, particularly those from the local community would be more likely use a car, resulting in more air pollution and  congestion. This would be a missed opportunity to enhance the options for sustainable travel to support active travel and healthier lifestyles as the regeneration of this area continues.


Assessment of Risk: Medium

Detailed designs have been drawn up for the project and the submitted tender price reflects this.

A risk management process is in place, with a project risk allocation identified. Risk will be monitored throughout the project delivery and with the risk allocation in place, it will allow for timely resolutions of any change that may occur when on site in a cost-effective manner.


The source of funding is:


The scheme is to be funded from Capital funding allocations via Growth Deal 2, Mayors Challenge Fund and Local Match.
