The circular pedestrian ramp to the rear of the World Museum, viewed through our eyes, is another ready-made gift to the city, transformed into a spectacular ‘theatre-in-the-round’ space which will complement the adjacent cultural attractions of the World Museum, Walker Art Gallery, Central Library and St Georges Hall.
The Flyover has the potential to become a thriving promenade and meeting space within an important part of the city centre which is central to the vision
The SIF’s vision is to enhance Liverpool’s distinctive offer, particularly through Enterprise, People and Place, The Flyover project not only underpins all three elements, but supports one of the SIFs objectives which is to provide safe and legible movement for pedestrians and cyclists from Dale Street to Lime Street
With creative use of low cost materials, there is no reason why a scheme with this amount of vision should cost the earth. Add to this, the siting of solar and wind energy generation along the park, powering a vibrant lighting scheme for night-time promenaders and cyclists, running costs can be minimized
Let’s not simply dispose of this structure, it’s one almighty opportunity waiting for action! (and it won a Concrete Society Award!)
