Road Closures

The Giant Spectacular event covers approximately 20 miles of the region’s highways and with large crowds expected, we do have to close some roads as part of the event.

We will try our best to maintain access and re-open roads as quickly as possible.  However, this will be dependant upon the numbers of people viewing the event, as safety will always be our priority.

Listed below are the road closures in Liverpool and Wirral, but if you would prefer, a downloadable copy of these lists is available.
