    Executive summary

    A Strategic Transport Framework Action Plan

    In 2016, Mott MacDonald produced (on behalf of Merseytravel and the Liverpool City Region

    District Partners) the Liverpool City Region (LCR) Transport Investment Pipeline, which covered

    Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St. Helens and Wirral as well as an overarching City

    Region level pipeline undertaken for Merseytravel. This project presented a ‘pipeline’ of

    transport investments for the next 20 years in the LCR, with one pipeline for each area. The

    pipelines were intended to act as the investment framework for transport schemes to be

    developed and delivered in support of the LCR’s new strategic transport vision, A Transport

    Plan for Growth.

    Since the development of the first Wirral Transport Pipeline in 2016 Wirral Council has produced

    a number of local policy documents which set transport in the borough in the context of

    significant economic growth. A Strategic Transport Framework Action Plan is therefore required

    to enable this growth and to ensure that the transport network is fully aligned with Wirral’s

    regeneration plans / proposals.

    Wirral’s ambitious aspirations for growth are outlined within the Wirral Strategic Regeneration

    Framework (SRF) – part of Wirral’s comprehensive ‘2020 Vision’ - which sets out the priorities
