Isle of Man Ferry Terminal link bridge secures funding

Liverpool City Council has allocated £200,000 from section 106 funds to support the project from Peel L&P.

The link bridge will bring together Princes Dock at Liverpool Waters with the Isle of Man Ferry Terminal at Central Dock, boosting the pedestrian and cycle paths between the two.

Chris Capes, Peel L&P’s development director for Liverpool Waters, said: “This bridge is a critical link, connecting the new ferry terminal with other developments at Liverpool Waters, including the recently approved £100m waterfront neighbourhood being developed at Central Dock by Romal Capital.

“The bridge will also encourage active and sustainable travel along the whole of the Liverpool waterfront through new connecting pedestrian and cycleways, which is an important part of our long-term plan for Liverpool Waters.”

Peel’s plans for the bridge include retaining the historic lock gates and embedding new granite setts into the ground. These setts would have each dock’s name on them.

The ferry terminal is currently under construction. Both the terminal and bridge are expected to open June next year.

Peel stated in a press release that the bridge will be part-funded with the £200,000 section 106 cash. The developer estimates the bridge will cost £298,138.52, according to council documents.

The section 106 funds award is subject to Peel and the city council agreeing on long-term maintenance plans for the bridge. The council’s inclusive design officer will also weigh in on designs for the bridge.

if its a critical link why arent Peel covering the cost

Hoping this gets built and provides access both to the ferry terminal and the waterfront, amazing they can cost it down to the last 52p.
On another note does the £100m Central Dock project include the 2 new blocks already built, as I can`t see the , thankfully, newly agreed blocks overlooking the river front costing that amount.

Its critical not only to the Peel development but wider connectivity across the city, hence Peel contribute and also the city for the wider benefits. Anon – its simple, really
