Improving walking, wheeling and cycling access

Two cyclists riding with blue, red and white helmets.

The Ellesmere Port town centre transformation plans will improve pedestrian and cycle links to make it safer and easier to walk, wheel and cycle from Ellesmere Port railway station into the heart of the town centre.

Your views 

Thank you to everyone who took part in the public engagement in autumn 2023. Over 220 people took part in the online survey and there were more than 100 comments from people at the drop-in sessions at the market. Other feedback has also been gathered to understand the practicalities of the proposed routes, including comments to the Levelling Up Fund email address, face-to-face engagement, social media, and a range of meetings with stakeholders.

Feedback from the engagement activity has informed which routes are now progressing to detailed designs. These are Route A for walking and wheeling along Whitby Road and Route B for cycling along Cromwell Road.

The project aims to help to reduce traffic congestion and improve accessibility to the main retail areas of the Town Centre.

Key aspects include:

  • Improved footways and safer, accessible crossing points
  • New cycle route
  • New bike parking

What are the different routes?
