Work has begun on highway improvement works near the Royal Liverpool Hospital along Kensington (A57)

The £3.5m scheme, is scheduled to run until Autumn 2019 and is part of Liverpool City Council’s £500m highway investment programme – Better Roads. We are delighted to be the successful tenderer for Better Roads and endeavour to help improve the cities roads.

The scheme will consist of replacing the existing road surface on the A57, which has deteriorated over the years, and upgrading highway drainage, pedestrian facilities, footways and traffic signals.

We endeavour to make a positive change in the quality of the key routes of the city.

Paving improvement in Kensington

Consequently we aim to reduce carbon emissions by creating better roads that improve the flow of traffic.

The programme will involve lane closures, diversionary routes, night working, temporary traffic lights and off-peak working. This is a large project for us to be working on and we believe the outcome of the works will hugely benefit drivers, pedestrians and the local community.

At certain times there will be road closures required to allow for safe working. These planned closures will be limited to overnight only (between 8pm and 6am) – unless there are unforeseen circumstances or an emergency situation arises. We will be working very closely with the city council to ensure that the programme runs smoothly and delays are at a minimum.

There will be diversion routes in place but road users may need to explore alternative journeys if travelling to and from the Islington, Fairfield, Kensington and Old Swan areas.

The first phase will be somewhat of a challenge due to the popularity and common use of the A57, but we are 100% confident we can complete the works safely whilst minimising disruption to the local community and commuters.
