Businesses in Birkenhead, Seacombe and Liscard are invited to attend a briefing on the proposed 3.5-mile route.

The significant regeneration project would run from Chester Street, Birkenhead, connecting Hamilton Square station, Woodside Ferry, Wirral Waters, Seacombe Ferry Terminal, Eureka! Science and Discovery Museum and Liscard town centre.

Businesses along the route are invited to attend one of the briefing sessions on Tuesday 21 November to share how they operate so that this can be factored into any final designs to be as effective as possible.

Improved pavements and crossing areas, more street furniture and seating and dedicated spaces to ride and park a bike (including tricycles and adapted bikes) are all ideas that will come under consideration to help make it easier for people to get to work, school or the shops - or simply create a more pleasant environment for people to travel along an spend time in. The project may also help reduce traffic congestion - minimising the impact on residents, customers and any business vehicles.

All businesses in the area will receive a letter inviting them. The letter will detail how to join the briefings. If you would like to speak to the team or attend a briefing, please email

Further information on the project can also be found on the council’s Have Your Say website including a video to show how streets could look and work and a survey to take part and tell us what you think. The consultation will be open until Monday 4 December 2023.
