    Regeneration4This phase covered the approach to Cadishead Village between the start of Liverpool Road to the Allenby Road Junction and was completed in 2013. The following street scene improvements were trialled and proved highly successful, giving people a view of what could be achieved.

    • Roads were narrowed
    • Trees and bulbs were planted
    • Street parking improved
    • Central reservation was put in
    • An informal pedestrian crossing was created
    • The footway was resurfaced

    These improvements offered benefits such as:

    • Slower vehicle speeds
    • On street parking
    • Safe and easy crossing points for pedestrians
    • Better conditions for cyclists
    • A more positive image of the area
  • Liverpool Road – Lower Irlam (Phase 2)
