    Default Cranes in our City

    THE two men who spearheaded Liverpool's bid to win Capital of Culture today said: "We hope the city is still being rebuilt in 2008".

    Council chief executive Sir David Henshaw, and former council leader Mike Storey - who now has the portfolio for special projects including culture - claimed a crane-filled skyline was good news for the city.

    Speaking today in response to criticism that many parts of the city will still resemble a building site in Capital of Culture year in 2008, Sir David said: "You cannot stop a growing and developing city."

    He told the council's executive board: "There is an opportunity to use these developments. Building work shows we are a vibrant city.

    "Melbourne has used its building sites for salsa dancing and we can do the same in Liverpool."

    Meanwhile, former council leader Mike Storey said he hopes that when 2008 arrives there will still be work in progress.

    He added: "We want to see cranes on the skyline.

    "When people visit a European city they do not see it in pristine condition.
    "I would be concerned if in 2008 we said "this is it" and there was no building going on and no cranes in sight.

    "In 2008, the city will be continuing to develop towards 2020......

    Exclamation Liverpool Cranes

    A further 22 tower cranes are set to join the 20 currently punctuating the Liverpool skyline, with only London and Dublin beating the count. City leaders are predicting one of the most exciting years in decades as a number of long-awaited projects get underway. Work on schemes such as Grosvenorís giant Paradise Street development, which accounts for 10 cranes, has sucked in thousands of construction workers, including a small army of Poles.

    London and Dublin - Both capital cities too

    Yes you're right there are many more cranes all around town but the ones I've counted are the big tower cranes,I'm sure King's Dock is expecting a few more cranes so you may be right.
