There seems to be some movement on the station front with the publishing by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority  of plans to start a process of exploring options to expand Central Station and the area around it and also to see if it can be linked directly to Lime Street Station.

Ideas are at an early stage but the former CEO of Everton FC Denise Barrett-Baxendale, has been appointed to chair a station commission to draw up ideas that will contribute to the design of a new ‘world-class’ rail hub in the city centre focusing on an expanded Central Station.

There is also talk of a new transport option for the city centre to link it with Anfield and JLA airport in Speke. That is copying the Belfast Glider scheme which is a bendy-bus operating between areas of high footfall but called a ‘trackless tram’ by authorities in Liverpool. It isn’t anywhere near as aspirational as other UK cities have delivered with their tram networks but we have to try something to improve the current challenges found on match days and with travellers to and from the airport.
