Work is to start on creating a new dual carriageway for a major route into Liverpool city centre. The first phase of the works will be at the city centre junction of Leeds Street and King Edward Street. During off-peak times, the junction may be reduced to single lane running and motorists heading north and east out of the city centre from The Strand are advised to expect extended journey times and consider using alternative routes. This part of the project is expected to be completed by Winter 2017.
