    L1 has no cranes anymore, plus I think St Pauls only has 1 now.

    I know this is a city centre crane count but have you seen the ones at Whiston Hospital? There must be about 6!

    It's great that regeneration is taking place all over now,there are a lot of projects outside of the city centre just waiting to start.

    Cheers Paul, I was listening to Kev Seed the other day and he said that the cranes are colour coded depending on where abouts they are in town, ie PSD all white. Is there any truth in this?

    Maybe part of it are but they're definitely different colours,see above.

    I doubt it. I'd have thought it's down to whichever crane hire company is used. PSD has white, red, green and blue cranes on it. I expect most sites only use one hire company, and so probably have the same colour cranes. As Paradise St is broken down into sub-sites, it's possible that different bits use different companies.

    There's one just gone up at Park Road, on the Clarendon Park development (which is mostly finished), opposite Somerfield.
    I'll put a photo in the Toxteth thread.

    I don't know if this is on the list...it's over the road from the University in Duckinfield Street (rear of Catholic Cathedral). This is one of the very few sites where you can see what's going on...until they put up hoardings down this street.

    Edit: I checked the hoardings and this is already on the list...arts and design building for the university.

    Of course I recognise it now...cheers.
    I think they look more impressive from the ground though in Hannover street...makes you feel kind of small.

    That's the same reason I took the pics, its a surreal experience walking in that part of town.

    In pic 2 and the last pic (the same crane I think) I notice both the Canadian Flag and the French Flag fly on it.
    Do you know the reason for that ?
    Just curious

    In the last couple of weeks, one of the big white cranes from Paradise Street was taken out - it was roughly where the old bus station/car park was; and another one has gone up, near Cesar Pelli's tower. By the look of it I don't think it'll be there for long though, its base isn't buried in the ground like the rest.

    Can't remember when the one at St Pauls went, but not seen the mobile one they had lately either.

    Default From New Ferry.

    29 June 2007.

    From New Ferry it's clear to see that nothing of any height has yet been built.
    In fact (in this shot) the only tall buildings are structures from the 1960s.
    (Apart from the Law Courts and the Municipal's tower.)

    ...and one of the white cranes has been removed from Paradise Street, roughly where the Moat House Hotel used to be. I can't see the other ones in the same area (two of them left) being around for much longer.

    That's a funny one-it looks like the cranes are gossiping to each other like old women! .

    A red tower crane was erected on Saturday at West Derby St/Crown St. The site used to be a car-park.
