Wirral Street Car

The Wirral Streetcar is a unique opportunity to provide a low cost, scaleable, sustainable, light rail service that could provide a ‘feeder’ service into the Mersey Rail network. The Streetcar could have a tourism role by linking Wirral Waters, the Mersey Ferry terminals and Pier Head – as well as providing better connections into the transport hubs.

Wirral Street Car

Description

East Wirral benefits from a  unique set of circumstances to enable the project to happen including: an existing Heritage Tram system, second hand rolling stock, existing re-usable track and positive Central Government support.  Furthermore, the project harks back to Birkenhead’s pioneering past being the first place in Europe to have a Street Tram.

Project partners: Merseytravel and Wirral Council
