Up the reds! You might be feeling a little tender today but there’s no time for hangovers with the Liverpool FC Victory Parade starting at 4pm today (Sunday 2nd). Here’s the official route for the parade taking place across the city.
Liverpool FC Victory Parade Route 2019
Starting at Allerton Maze and travelling north bound on Queens Drive towards the Fiveways roundabout and Rocket flyover. From here it will go to:
- Queens Drive
- Mill Bank
- West Derby Road
- Leeds Street
- The Strand
- Route finishes at Blundell Street
It is expected there will be significant disruption around the parade route travel advice is available at www.merseytravel.gov.uk to help spectators, workers and residents plan their journeys in advance. ‘Live’ travel updates and alerts will be available from Merseytravel via the journey planner app, and on Twitter @Merseytravel, #LFCparade
The Strand will be closed northbound on 2 June from Leeds Street / Old Hall Street junction to Blundell Street junction from 9.00am to 11pm or until it is safe to re-open.
The southbound lane will be closed from approx. 5pm until 11pm, again subject to crowd safety requirements.
The closures for Allerton Maze, Queen’s Drive, Millbank, West Derby Road (outward bound), Erskine Street, Islington, Hunter Street and Leeds Street will not go in until the parade approaches (please note, this is subject to change and we may decide to put closures in earlier – this is at our discretion).
West Derby Road city bound will also be closed from Sheil Road at 4pm until the conclusion of the parade in this area.
As a consequence of the event and in the interests of public safety, there will be a number of roads closed (as stated above) to allow the route to proceed. The route itself and roads directly off the main route will be closed for the minimum length of time to allow safe passage of the bus and spectators. These rolling closures have been designed to allow the minimum length of road closures that is possible. General pedestrian access will be maintained at all times. Traffic orders are in place to support these measures.
