Pedestrian lane launched in Liverpool

The first pedestrian fast lane in Britain has been launched in Liverpool.

Markings have been drawn up in the city to encourage people to move along the pavement at a swifter pace and thus reduce the congestion around Liverpool.

Retail expert Dr Alastair Moore explained: "As the research ­demonstrates, a faster high street could vastly improve the overall shopping ­experience for British shoppers across the UK.

"The pedestrianised fast track lane is a great way of making this possible and with nearly 30 million Brits saying they'd like one on their own high street, the pilot is set to be a success."
