    Anyone got any idea what on earth is happening to this building? I simply cannot believe what has happened to it over the past 20 years. The silence from the council is deafening. It's in such a...

    This has all been discussed very extensively in the past. Even if Merseytravel had 50m to spare, as opposed to the paltry 5m provided for by the DfT, these projects would never go ahead. Everyone...

    Well you've certainly done a good job of bringing your standards into question, thats for sure. To not expect a seat on an English train is ludicrous. It may be realistic, but to call it a "bonus" is...

    Well I explained to you why reopening Exchange was pointless, so there was some consideration towards function... So that's point 1.

    Point 2...
    No-one is entitled to a seat?! Jesus, your...

    Robt - your dismissal of design considerations sums up the low standards of design in modern Britain. There is no reason to reopen Exchange Station other than the fact it is a fantastic, unique...

    I take your point, but the only reason why I'd like to see it reopened is because it such a glorious building, both from the inside and the outside.
    Its also a shame the old line (ground-level) has...

    Nah that's just defeatist to say Central is too small to redevelop. A bit of engineering craft and innovation would find some sort of solution. Its a typical "cannot do" mentality that holds this...

    Talk of replacing is Central is just ridiculous. Its location is still great, after all the developments that have taken place over the last few decades, its location is still important.
    It really...

    As I say, I don't care about other British cities (as regards to my argument). If they have similar problems, fine. If they don't, fine. Good for them.
    This disease is not unique, of course it...

    Once again, these monetary figures have no support whatsoever. What are you basing these costs on? I'm intrigued.
    If you can think of a similar project from around the world on a similar scale which...

    Agreed. There never was a passenger station down there. There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest otherwise.

    Disagree about the next paragraph though. You've plucked the figure of ?0.5bn out the...

    Merseyside Annual Transport Conference

    Hello all,

    It's been a while since I've been on here but I have received an invite from a colleague at Sefton Council to attend the Merseyside Annual Transport Conference in October. Details...

    Yes, I agree with the 'getting rid of Speke' principle, but come on, let's be realistic here!
    By all means, get rid of any derelict housing, of which there is quite a bit, no-one wants to move there...

    Yep, that is definitely off-topic.

    Quick word on JLA Airport - more sweeping assumptions that "People not even stopping in the city and using the airport to go elsewhere, may not be such a benefit...

    Because it is a popular cycling/walking path - part of the Trans-Pennine Trail. It wouldn't set the council back by millions of pounds a year.
  16. I had to laugh at the Lodge Lane 'war zone'...

    I had to laugh at the Lodge Lane 'war zone' reference. That area is just one of many areas that are on its knees in the city - have you not seen Gilmoss/Croxteth? Parts of Kirkdale and Bootle? Loads...

    As you say yourself, quality public transport systems attract people to live and work so why not get an overhead by the docks put in place immediately and watch the population increase... which is...

    WW just assumed that us suburbanites shun public transport for the car - which is just a sweeping statement AND that we only use the city to go to work!!!! We obviously do not have very active lives,...

    I prefer the suburbs over the city. I don't have children but I'd still like a garden. You can't just expect people to move into the city because of all these modern developments. If people like...

    Interesting to hear about the Roger Phillips phone-in. Will Waterways phone in next time Merseytravel make an appearance?! Good way of putting MT on the spot...

    Good stuff. Of course it is important to not lose focus, but what I write on this board does not necessarily mean it is in my dissertation! For instance, the 'hanging railway' was a bit of...

    Also, who are you to say 'your analytical skills are poor'?! If you hold a Doctorate in Transport Planning, shouldn't you be at work or holding talks with more significant people?! I don't understand...

    Would anyone know how to obtain a copy of this report? Merseytravel are such a pain the backside to get in touch with.

    Dr. WW PhD, thanks for the kind advice but it is my aim to come up with a...

    You keep suggesting that 'all the infrastructure is in place'. Well, are all the original tracks still there waiting to be used, like the NMB or Bootle Branch? I think not.
    Either way, whether trams...

    And while I'm on the subject of innovation - the dismissals of the Liverpool Overhead are so conservative. What a fantastic addition that would be - and we even get to use the Dingle Tunnel -...
