Cycling Superhighway project overcomes hurdle

Source: Runcorn & Widnes World

A major 10-year transport project which includes a cycle ‘superhighway’ and road improvements in Runcorn has cleared a vital hurdle.

Halton Borough Council bosses have given the green light to the next phase of the East Runcorn Connectivity Corridor (ERCC) scheme, which would reshape the transport infrastructure network in that part of the town over the next decade.

The project is part of a wider Liverpool City Region Transport Pipeline which planners hope will underpin the creation of new job opportunities and housing projects, specifically around East Runcorn at Sandymoor, Sci-Tech and Manor Park.

The project includes the idening of the A558 Daresbury Expressway from the junction of Pitts Heath Lane to Innovation Way, major maintenance of the A56 from the junction at Keckwick Lane to M56 junction 11, the introduction of a direct cycle superhighway from the Pitts Heath Lane Junction to the existing A56 cycle corridor - connecting Halton with Warrington - and a new road connecting M56 J11 to the A533.
