St Helens Borough Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)
What is the St Helens Borough LCWIP?
The purpose of this plan is to set out a prioritised list of schemes for delivery over the next 10 years that will improve walking and cycling infrastructure for St Helens Borough residents, workers and visitors alike.
To do this:
- We looked at what's already there, what the barriers were and what had potential for improvement.
- We identified connections which people use frequently and made a list of schemes to bring about improvement. This included new routes and improvements to existing routes.
- Finally, we prioritised based on things that are important to St Helens, such as improving links to education, improving road safety and reducing carbon emissions.
A great deal of research has helped inform the development of the plan, alongside a 6-week public consultation on the Draft LCWIP, before the final LCWIP was adopted by Cabinet on April 2023.
