We’ve been a little quiet of late, but we’ve not been idle, far from it. Since we published Issue 8 in August we have been working hard on a number of changes, most of which we will bring to you early next year.
Issue 9 will be published during the first week of December, a couple weeks later than previous editions. Future Quarterly editions throughout 2016 will be published in March, June, September and December

It feels to us like Liverpool is a city at a crossroads. The worst pedestrian and cyclist road safety track record in the country. Deprived neighbourhoods with chronic health issues and low car ownership. Offered millions of pounds of central government funding for local transport development, the city has elected to remove an important active travel corridor prior to the publication of a review into its effectiveness. The actions of a local councillor, praised by the City Mayor, could lead to a huge reduction in local transport funding that will set the city back years. We look back at the last two years, the impact of Covid, and ask is this the end of the road for a co-ordinated active travel plan for Liverpool?
