Tom Cosgrove QC and Jack Parker are acting on behalf of Sefton MB Council in a proposed judicial review of Highway England’s decision dated 31 August 2017 to adopt, as the preferred route for the A5036 Port of Liverpool Access Scheme, a new dual carriageway bypass through the Rimrose Valley (known as “Option B”). The case concerns the A5036 Port of Liverpool Access Scheme – which is a major new road scheme intended to improve access between the Port of Liverpool (“the Port”) and the M57/M58 motorway.
