Sustainable Urban Development Work Package 6: Phase 5
Beaufort Road And Wallasey Bridge
Road - Proposed Cycle Pedestrian Improvement Scheme

This report seeks acceptance of a tender from Cambrianway Ltd and award of a contract for the construction of highway improvements to Beaufort Road and Wallasey Bridge Road, Bidston and St James Ward and considers objections and expressions of support received following consultation. This scheme has been developed as part of Sustainable Urban Development (SUD) Work Package 6, Phase 5. 


The Wirral Plan 2021-2026 sets out the council’s vision to secure the best possible future for our residents, defined by the community prosperity we create and supported by our excellent people and services. This proposal directly supports the following key themes within that plan:

  A cleaner, greener borough which celebrates, protects, and improves our environment and urgently tackles the environmental emergency; 

  A prosperous inclusive economy where local people can get good jobs and achieve their aspirations; and

  Safe, vibrant communities where people want to live and raise their families.


The purpose of this scheme is to create an environment that is safe for both pedestrians and cyclists and to help embed walking and cycling as part of new longterm commuting habits.


This matter affects Bidston and St James Ward.
