Extra cash for city pavements
Oct 27 2007 by Nick Coligan, Liverpool Echo
MORE money has been found to extend a scheme to re-pave city centre streets.
Work is due to start on re-laying footpaths on Whitechapel, between Church Street and Sir Thomas Street, at the end of this month.
But additional cash has been provided by the European Regional Development Fund, Neptune Developments and Merseytravel to increase the amount of work carried out under the £350,000 scheme.
Pavements on the Queen Square side of Old Haymarket and Whitechapel, to the junction with Sir Thomas Street, will now be improved as well.
Work will start in the area outside Dr Duncanís pub on Monday and continue until December, when it will be suspended to allow access to the Queen Square car park for Christmas shopping.
It will resume in January and be completed by the end of March.
The scheme is part of the £73m city centre movement strategy to improve roads and public areas.
