Liverpool Waters project begins

Steam Packet terminal to move

Work on a project which will eventually see a new ferry terminal for Manx passengers has officially begun.

The first phase of the £5 billion Liverpool Waters scheme got under way with a groundbreaking ceremony earlier this week.

It will eventually see a facility for the Steam Packet built further up the Mersey, as the current one makes way for a new international cruise ship terminal.

Everton Football Club also plans to build a new stadium at Bramley-More Dock.

Development director Lindsey Ashworth said 2018 will be 'a significant year' for Liverpool Waters, which has been called the biggest regeneration project in Europe.
