THE A565 ATLANTIC AVENUE PROJECT - A REGENERATION CORRIDOR

This article describes the highway improvement scheme proposed for the A565, part of Merseyside Development Corporation's "Atlantic Avenue" regeneration area in North Liverpool, which is notable for a number of aspects of its concept and design. In particular, it is being promoted by Merseyside Development Corporation as a major scheme on the national primary route network, involving a section of Trunk Road. Because of this and in keeping with the regeneration objectives of the Corporation, the scheme has been designed to give greater priority to environmental improvement, local accessibility and economic development. The progress of the project has involved detailed negotiations with the three highway authorities affected and a comprehensive assessment of the costs and wider benefits associated with the scheme.
