Liverpool demands £120 million upgrade of Rocket Roundabout at end of M62

It's estimated 100,000 motorists pass through Liverpool's Rocket junction every day

Drivers might be relieved to hear there could be a major overhaul of the Rocket Junction at the Liverpool end of the M62.

If it gets the go ahead from the Department of Transport 120-million pounds will be spent updating the junction between the M62 and major trunk roads into the city.

The Rocket Junction is the busiest in Liverpool city region with over 100,000 vehicles travelling through it every day.

Transport for the North has included Liverpool City Council's scheme as one of four major projects within a £700m programme of works that have been identified as critical to the economic growth of the north of England.

The proposals include the demolition of the Queens Drive Flyover and replacing it with a new roundabout, featuring a dual lane underpass.
