    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.


    ADVERTISING




    "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......

    What do u think? Are cranes a good sign?

    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

    Photees and comments please You can't help but notice them as you drive past can you?

    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.

    30 Tower Cranes which is another milestone reached plus countless mobile cranes.Considering you were lucky if you saw 1 a couple of years ago this latest count is nothing short of unbelievable.

    32 Remember this is just for tower cranes there are well more than this in reality.

    As much as I love the activity down town I'll be glad when we start to make serious in roads with all the new developments and the progress becomes more apparent,Liverpool at the moment is a building site and when the wraps come off I'll be more confident for tourists to see it.

    Just noticed the recently erected one by the Coburg pub (Sefton St/Parliament St). Grafton St/Horsfall St. has a tower crane, I don't remember the specific name of the development.

    The crane on the Liverpool One site that was above the new Debenhams came down a few days ago, did you count that one out Paul?

    A rare bit of activity this afternoon on the L1 site: one of the tower cranes was dismantling its neighbour. Dunno if they're all coming down. What's happening here, has the L1 scheme been scrapped?

    Don't know, but the crane's are on lease and probably costing money. I'm guessing whoever owns them wanted them back...

    At the moment it's not looking good is it? They must cost brewsters keeping them there idle though.

    Paul and others,
    I know some of you don't get downtown much, but neither do the ladies on SSC which is where you get most of your info from. Most of them haven't a clue.
    Ignore them. Just a piece of advice

    I'd been wondering that for some time. I can't remember last time I saw them working there, must be about 12 months now, and 4 cranes sat there doing nothing must be costing someone money. As of lunchtime today when I went out, two of them had gone, and it looked like they were getting a third one ready for dismantling.

    Yes, within a few more days I'll expect they'll on be gone. Logical, I suppose, but a shame as I was planning to go back there...
