The public was asked to vote on the name of a new station in Liverpool.

The new station will be on the site of the former St. James station in Liverpool.

To avoid confusion with the existing James Street station in Liverpool city centre, the new station will have a completely different name to avoid confusion with James Street station and to reflect the modern area in which it will be located.

The original St. James station opened in 1874 and is named after the nearby parish church. It closed in 1917 as a cost-cutting measure during World War I and never reopened.

CGI images and a video flyover were produced to show what the new station might look like.

They show the basis of the station’s basic design but do not reflect the final finishes and fittings, although they do bring the ticket office, bike storage, escalators and platforms to life, to show what will be the development of the station once it is completed.

You can see the full CGI flyover video below

After initial discussions between the main program partners, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, Network Rail, Merseyrail and Liverpool City Council, the following shortlist of potential names has been established:

  • Liverpool Baltic
  • Liverpool Parliament Street
  • Riverside of Liverpool

Public voting is open until 5 p.m. on Friday, February 18 and can be viewed here

Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram has pledged to build a station on the site, which will be located in one of the city’s most vibrant areas, close to the old Cains Brewery and Anglican Cathedral.

The area has undergone a huge redevelopment in recent years, seeing it become home to a wide range of over 350 creative and digital industries, with over 1,000 apartments built since 2012 and plans for at least 3,000 more, at the alongside the various popular creative and leisure facilities that have opened.

The station would be located between Liverpool Central and Brunswick Station on the Northern Line and would include passenger toilets, a cycle centre, step-free access to and between the two platforms and an outside passenger drop-off area .

The program will enter the next stage of design development in the new year. Land has already been purchased to safeguard the site of the new station ticket office building. Current plans are for the station to open in 2025, subject to funding for the construction phase.

Steve Rotheram, Mayor of Liverpool City Region, said: “I am ambitious about the future of public transport in our region and the new Liverpool station – alongside another new station at Headbolt Lane in Kirkby – are just the first step towards a wider Merseyrail for all. network. I want our region to have what London has had for years: an affordable, reliable and easy-to-use transport system.

“But I also want local residents to feel like they own our system network. Our new trains are state-owned, as are our new fleet of hydrogen buses, and we are working to gain greater public control over the wider bus network.

“In this context, we would like to know your point of view on what we should call this new station. This area has been one of the region’s success stories in recent years, transforming itself from an overlooked area into a vibrant and thriving place to live, work and socialize. We believe this new station helps to continue this renaissance. »

Cllr Sarah Doyle, Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: “It is exciting to see that we are now at the stage of reviewing designs and renaming this station. This is a symbolic but extremely important step in the process of bringing the station back into service.

“A huge amount of work is going on behind the scenes to make sure this redesign not only works from a transportation perspective, but also how it fits into the area’s ongoing regeneration and supports the existing residential communities.

“Whatever name the public chooses, it’s safe to say the station will be a real game-changer in more ways than one.”

Andy Heat. Merseyrail Chief Executive, Said “I am pleased that we are able to involve the people of the Liverpool City area in the planning of a new station on the Merseyrail network.

“Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, so it seems fitting that they have the option of choosing the name of the new station.

“The station will be a welcome addition to the area which has seen exponential growth in the creative and hospitality industries, as well as residential developments in recent years. We look forward to serving the people who live, work and socialize there.

Why is the station built?

Unemployment rate at lowest since August 2008 | Liverpool City Champion https://liverpool-il.com/unemployment-rate-at-lowest-since-august-2008-liverpool-city-champion/ Thu, 20 Jan 2022 03:29:16 +0000 https://liverpool-il.com/unemployment-rate-at-lowest-since-august-2008-liverpool-city-champion/ Australia’s unemployment rate unexpectedly fell to 4.2% in December, its lowest level since August 2008 and sparking speculation that the official exchange rate will rise later this year.

Australia’s unemployment rate unexpectedly fell to 4.2% in December, its lowest level since August 2008 and sparking speculation that the official exchange rate will rise later this year.

Economists had predicted that the unemployment rate would drop from 4.6% to 4.5% in November.

The decline was even faster than the Reserve Bank of Australia expected just a few months ago and did not expect to reach 4.25% before the end of 2022.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics said 64,800 people joined the labor force in December as part of a fresh recovery from last year’s COVID-19 lockdowns in New South Wales, Victoria and the United States. ACT.

The data did not take into account the impact of the Omicron variant in the later stages of December and in January.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg clung to the numbers, noting that the jobless rate is now tied for the fourth lowest since the ABS began publishing monthly figures in 1978.

“We know there are great pressures right now, but we also know the economy is very resilient, and a standout player has been the labor market where jobs, jobs and more jobs have been created,” he told reporters in Melbourne. Thusday.

But Labor deputy leader Richard Marles said that if Prime Minister Scott Morrison tried to claim those figures were ‘mission accomplished’ in this election year, ‘it would be a complete fantasy’.

“If anything, they highlight exactly what is endangered by this government’s failure to handle the Omicron wave,” he told reporters.

But companies and economists hope Omicron’s impact will be short-lived.

Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief executive Andrew McKellar said there were labor and skills shortages in many sectors.

This underscored the need for the government to boost labor force participation by investing in skills and establishing an ambitious skilled migration agenda, he said.

“While we can expect Omicron to disrupt these significant (jobs) gains in early 2022, these pressures should quickly reappear as case numbers begin to decline,” he told the PAA.

BIS Oxford Economics chief economist Sarah Hunter said experience from overseas suggests the impact of Omicron will be large but short-lived and less economically damaging than previous waves.

“Overall, the unemployment rate is expected to remain below 4.5% this year, and with companies still looking to recruit staff, this will create additional upward pressure on wages and domestic inflationary pressure,” he said. said Dr. Hunter.

“Today’s data reinforces our view that the RBA will tighten the cash rate much sooner than it is currently signaling.”

Inflation figures for the December quarter are due on Tuesday.

Separately, new data has shown that while Australians intended to spend a lot of money until 2022, there are already signs that these expectations will not be met due to the impact of Omicron.

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s household spending intentions index rose 2.5% in December, its highest level since the survey began in July 2017.

The largest gains were recorded in the travel, transportation and retail sectors.

The index combines analysis of CBA payment data, loan applications and publicly available search activity on Google Trends.

ABC senior economist Belinda Allen said household spending data for December showed a sustained recovery from the Delta lockdowns, fueled by accumulated household savings estimated at some $260 billion.

“(But) we can see from our high-frequency credit and debit card data that there appears to be a drop in spending in January, with spending on services being more affected than spending on goods,” she said.

The Letterbox believes the FSG is pulling the wool over the eyes of Liverpool fans, while a Spurs supporter bemoans the FA Cup schedule.

Get your point of view on any subject in theeditor@football365.com

FSG con
One of the biggest tricks FSG has played on the Liverpool fan base and apparently Dave LFC over the past few years convinced them we had no money.

Every time I took my seat at Anfield at the start of the season I was silent and squealed every time people chanted ‘reds don’t have money, we’re still going to win the league’.

A quick Google tells me that Liverpool is currently the 5th highest earning football in the world.

You can make all your (flimsy) arguments on whether we should meet Salah’s wage demands, or draw wildly speculative and misguided parallels with Barcelona despite the fact that LFC haven’t invested in our squad for 2 years, of course. But we *can* categorically afford to pay Salah’s salary.

We have a lot of places that will need fresh blood over the next two years. If you just cheat and cover FSG’s recent shortcomings in the transfer market, that’s fine, but don’t expect to win things without investing in the team, and above all don’t expect to win things when Salah and Klopp left.

I suspect you will value Salah in hindsight.

PM Mailbox Monday: Salah and the ad-serving contest Liverpool should avoid


Dave LFC makes a great point of not being able to prevent their best player from moving on to other better-off teams.

He declares petro dollars for PSG and Man City, also very true so fair play. I agree 100% with the point.

Welcome to the challenge that 99% of other football clubs who cannot compete with the imbalance of football finances for one reason or another (mainly Premier League and Champions League financial doping) face and why they are therefore unable to prevent their best players from moving. to clubs that can pay more wages.

Cardboard box big fish, small fish.
Brian, BRFC (add as many fish sizes as needed to fit your club)

Are Spanish clubs really broke?
We’ve read a lot lately about the dire state of Barca and Real, but it’s come to a head with Dave LFC explaining how Liverpool can’t afford Salah.

Madrid apparently signing unknown prospects for peanuts? Still, Camavinga was wanted by most of Europe and Vinicious was signed for €45,000,000 around a month after his debut.

Barca have some incredible youngsters that any club could sign (Gavi, Nico and Puig to a lesser extent) while rumors suggest Dubai could bail them out? Add to that they signed Torres from Citeh for a small fee.

Yes, Barca are under reconstruction, but that’s because they bought absolute shit for 5 years. Mbappe and Haaland are both moving this summer and, I bet my hat one or both end up in Spain.
Tom (Carlos is not very good) HTFC

Nothing without “fans”
You will all remember the condescending radio and TV commentators who kept saying how great it was to reunite with the “fans” after Covid. How important the “fans” are to the game and how without the “fans” the game was nothing and not as entertaining. They didn’t air that it wasn’t worth that much in ad revenue or TV rights, so I guess that must have been taken as read.

Now, I hate the term “fans” because it’s often used in a way that sounds like “little people,” especially around this time, plus I’m not a fanatic. At one point I thought that was a topic for another day, but as I write it seems fair to put it here. All that love for the ‘fans’ was forgotten with the schedule for the FA Cup tie between Tottenham and Brighton moved to 8.00pm on a Saturday night. You can almost hear the TV executives say “the little people won’t care, they’ll come anyway”.

8:00 p.m. on a Saturday night is quite inconvenient for a Spurs supporter, so must be a pain at Arsenal for Brighton supporters. Don’t talk, whatever you do, about the magic of the FA Cup.

There is clearly no consideration for people paying to watch the sport at this time and this is symptomatic of the little control and influence that paying football fans have when watching the team that they follow. We are given no consideration. I was already bothered by this week’s Spurs v Arsenal postponement (and loved the 16, about right conclusions) which was the result of a deal that could never have been verified by lawyers – if so they should be fired and replaced by a competent law firm as if the imbeciles who run football clubs can outwit you you’re in trouble. The NFL seems to have all angles and eventualities covered by watertight rules and regulations, so why not talk to them, Daniel Levy can arrange an introduction.

I won’t be going to the game and I know I’m whistling in the air when I say that the only effective way to stop TV executives (who have been given the power of the FA) to hold these games at times also ridiculous is that people don’t show up. I know there will be other fans with legitimate and similar gripes, so this isn’t just a one-eyed prospect.

As a Spurs fan, I will already have to put up with around 15 games in 21 days at the end of the season, no doubt arranged for particular times that don’t suit anyone other than Sky and BT (which are by no means the only villains here). Everyone will complain that it’s not fair to the players, but spare a thought to support it everyday, no one else does.
Rob (I had Covid so I feel miserable anyway)

The spirit of the rules
Just a quick note to say that Leeds have been fined £200,000 for not breaking any rules but going against their spirit.

I can’t wait for the punishments that surely come to all those teams that also don’t break the rules but cancel games.

……..Oh wait they are not.
Duncan dirty Leeds and their ways of spying

The Pep Enigma and FSG Anxiety
As I sit here in the hospital, I wonder if the nth fever is rona this time; Rob’s post got me thinking – isn’t Pep bored walking around the league almost every season? Most of us are bored of a PlayStation game once we’ve mastered it, and Professor Pep never ceases to collectively blow our minds; but the CL trophy still eludes him, it could be his last course before lowering the controller and moving on to another title (championship or national team, Pep for the three lions anyone? No?)

After admiring the Lex Luthor to our Supermen (Come on, we’re a well-established team, apart from the GK and this Rolls Royce of a CB, or was one). Rob is right again – They are our best team in PL.
But the concern is to invest more so as not to return to the days of sweating in the event of an exit for 4th place (if you consider last season a blip) or the Europa league (chills).

Bowen, Rapinha are the names mentioned and would gladly take them. There’s no guarantee that stellar signings from the Bundesliga would work out (see, Werner and Sancho v Bellingham and Haland).
But we need a prolific goalscorer or magician in the middle to continue unlocking teams and collecting maximum points next season. (Can Stephen Strange backtrack on Philippe Coutinho please)

Do.
Mihir. LFC. Mumbai. (Always would take the league over the CL)

Maths365
Just a quick retort to Dan’s “statistical” analysis of trophies won and relative national dominance.

If Dan assumes City have won the league this season (fair enough), then whatever 10 year period he wants to use is his 5 titles in 10 seasons. Or 6 out of 11. But definitely not 6 out of 10.

Nor have City ‘won 46 per cent of all domestic trophies at their disposal over the last decade’. That would be 14 out of 30 trophies, and to do that we need to win and include the League this season and start counting from winning the FA Cup in 2011. And doing a decade 12 to ‘prove’ your point seems a bit of a stretch.

Over the past 10 seasons (that’s a Dan decade), City have won 12 domestic trophies, or 40%. In 10 seasons (91-92 to 00-01), United have won 11 domestic trophies, or 37%.

So one more cut over 10 seasons is hardly statically significant I would say, so I’m not sure what you mean.

Best regards,
Andy D. Manchester. MCFC.

More than 12,000 people visited Gaia, the giant replica of planet Earth in Rochdale during its five-week run which ended last month. The seven-meter display at Number One Riverside was taken down during the festive break.

40 school groups visited the famous three-dimensional model and 14 events took place during its stay, including the switching on of Christmas lights, live theatre, science shows, an astronaut training camp, performances circus, a show on green careers, the ecological event My Earth and many others.

They all had the theme of considering our impact on the planet and what we can each do to make the borough greener. Students from Hopwood Hall College and local residents also took part in a debate on climate change, discussing major environmental issues facing the borough, which can be viewed online.

Councilor Sara Rowbotham, Deputy Leader of Rochdale Borough Council and Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability, said that despite the challenges of the pandemic, Gaia’s residency had been a success: “Gaia has helped launch many conversations about climate change and to really boost our climate change agenda. , and it was awesome to see how powerful a work of art can be.

“The additional events and the way so many local groups and residents of all ages got involved brought a real sense of community to the overall experience. While one or two events had to be canceled and the pandemic will inevitably have impacted numbers, the feedback has been fantastic, visitors have been truly captivated and Gaia has been a success that we really want to build on.

“Thank you to all our volunteers and everyone who came to see it. This is only the beginning to tackle the urgency of climate change, there is still a lot of work to do.

3,895 visitors shared their views on the borough’s climate change priorities, voting for what they believe should be the top priority. First, “reduce, reuse and recycle the things we buy and throw away”, with 1,197 votes, second with 860 votes, “invest in the natural environment, including planting more trees and protecting resources and the local ecosystem” and third, “more green energy to heat and power our homes and buildings to stop the use of fossil fuels” with 831 votes.

Councilor Sue Smith, cabinet member for Communities and Cooperation, said: “In light of the pandemic, I think there has already been a renewed respect for nature and our thoughts on caring for the planet strengthened in many ways. It was a perfect time to bring Gaia to Rochdale.

Darren Grice, Deputy Managing Director of Your Trust, added: “We are delighted to have supported Gaia’s stay. It has been fabulous to see another high profile exhibition at Number One Riverside, following Dippy’s successful visit in 2020, showcasing art in a truly relevant and accessible way, inspiring us all.

“You can see from all the social media posts what an impact this has had and what a great space Number One Riverside is for large scale exhibitions.”

The exhibition and support events were organized in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council and Your Trust, supported financially by the Garfield Weston Foundation.

Liverpool are said to be confident their set-up is capable of rivaling that of their European rivals when it comes to attracting the signing of linked teenager Jude Bellingham.

It comes from a ‘source close to the Reds’ for Caught Offside, with the Anfield-based side said to be considering potential midfield additions to the squad.

It is highly unlikely that such additions to mid-park or otherwise will happen during the winter window – at least not without a serious injury crisis of a similar proportion to that which has plagued the club’s backline this season. last.

READ MORE: David Ornstein shares worrying Salah and Liverpool contract verdict as talks continue on: ‘Not ready to meet’

As the stark stalemate with Arsenal perhaps best demonstrated, Jurgen Klopp’s men certainly need a bit more creativity with Thiago Alcantara and Naby Keita (currently out of AFCON) unavailable.

With plenty going on about the next meeting of England’s top-flight sides at the Emirates Stadium, some fans will understandably be tempted to take a chance with a bet. However, it still pays to stay alert to the risks of gambling, so this article may be helpful.

Beyond the Merseysiders backline, there are serious concerns over the future of the midfield and attacking departments, with the former’s average age profile particularly in evidence.

While James Milner’s (36) contract looks set to run its course at the end of the season, the ex-Leeds United star’s exit will undoubtedly help matters.

That being said, with Jordan Henderson (31) and Thiago (30) in the 30-plus zone and a replacement for Gini Wijnaldum yet to be found – not to mention our No.8’s unreliability in terms of concerns injuries – there is a clear case for investing in at least one new option when possible.

Ideally our business will involve bringing in a slightly more experienced chef in addition to Bellingham to ensure the balance between experience and young talent remains to some degree.

Of course, we might be inclined to put a pin in such a level of investment given that the summer will most likely also be about expanding our offensive ranks.

The obvious hurdle when it comes to acquiring a talent of Bellingham’s caliber, however, remains the likely insurmountable asking price that Borussia Dortmund will rightly slap on any of their assets, especially given that his current tenures last another three years after the summer.

It’s unlikely to be a simple affair for us to cross the line – and especially not an expensive one – although with the prospect of getting more than a decade of footballing years on the 18-year-old, it’s is a deal that no doubt will. call.

CARSON CITY, Nevada (AP) – In a campaign ad, Nevada gubernatorial candidate Michele Fiore pulls out of a Ford F-150 with a handgun in a hip holster and tells viewers that ‘she was one of the first elected to support Donald Trump in ahead of the 2016 election.

“You better believe I was attacked for it,” Fiore says, affirming his commitment to the former president as a country rock style guitar riff plays in the background.

She’s hoping Trump is watching.

In addition to buying ads in Nevada media markets like his competitors, Fiore is investing campaign funds to broadcast his 60-second segment in Palm Beach, Florida, where the former president spends the winter at his club. Mar-a-Lago.

His campaign spent $ 6,270 to air 62 television spots on Fox News in the West Palm Beach-Fort Pierce media marketplace during the last week of November, according to Federal Communications Commission documents. Since leaving office, Trump has divided his time between Florida, his official residence, and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he spent most of last summer.

When Fiore’s ads ran over the Thanksgiving holiday, he and his family were in Mar-a-Lago.

Candidates and interest groups have long used targeted cable ads as a means to reach out to television-obsessed Trump, often lining up spots in Washington and Florida to grab his attention when he was in the White House or on holiday. Fiore’s decision reflects Trump’s enduring post-presidential influence within the Republican Party and underscores how his endorsement is viewed as a potential change by Republicans involved in primary battles across the country.

Since Trump left the White House, much of the competition for his attention has been in Florida. In one particularly striking example, a multi-sided billboard on the boulevard connecting Palm Beach International Airport to Mar-a-Lago is often adorned with messages from supporters and detractors.

At the club, Trump hosted dozens of fundraisers and other events for Republicans running for the United States Senate, Governor, and other offices, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Dakota Gov. South Kristi Noem and Sarah Sanders, his former press secretary now running for Governor of Arkansas. The venue usually guarantees strong representation, thanks to its loyal and paying members and Trump appears often, even at events he isn’t hosting.

He has also welcomed a succession of candidates seeking his support, including Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin running against incumbent Republican Gov. Brad Little. Trump endorsed McGeachin a week after his visit to Mar-a-Lago in November.

Fiore, a Las Vegas city councilor, is one of at least 10 candidates to run for governor in Nevada, a swing state Trump narrowly lost in 2020.

She was elected in 2012 to the Statehouse of Nevada, where she championed gun rights and presented a controversial proposal that would have significantly reduced federal authority to manage Nevada’s public lands and waters. Her ties and support to breeder Cliven Bundy and her family during armed clashes between self-proclaimed members of citizen militias and federal law enforcement propelled her into the national spotlight in 2014 and 2016.

This year, Fiore is operating on a platform that includes opposing coronavirus warrants, supporting law enforcement against protesters she calls “national terrorists” and overturning Nevada’s decision. to send postal ballots to all active voters.

Other contenders for the June 2022 Republican primary include former US Senator Dean Heller, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, and Joey Gilbert, a lawyer for Reno who was outside the United States Capitol at the time. of last year’s insurgency. The winner will face Democratic Governor Steve Sisolak, who gained 5.1 percentage points in 2018.

Trump’s representatives did not respond to questions about whether he saw Fiore’s announcement or planned to endorse it in the Nevada gubernatorial race.

The Fiore campaign also spent more than $ 100,000 running ads in Reno, Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, where the media market stretches into rural northeastern Nevada. Targeting Florida airwaves in addition to Nevada is simply a reminder of the former president of her long-standing support, campaign consultant Rory McShane said.

“Many candidates seek Trump’s support, but if you look back four and five years ago, a lot of those same candidates disowned Trump and even organized anti-Trump rallies,” McShane said.

“It is important to remind the president’s team that Michele Fiore is the only true America First candidate to run for governor,” he added.

Heller, who told The Associated Press last week that he would also welcome Trump’s approval, objected to Trump over efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act in 2017, but both reconciled and campaigned together in 2018, when then-US Representative Jacky Rosen defeated Heller in The Nevada Senate Race.

As of 2020, Fiore has been the only candidate to run for a statewide office outside of Florida to buy ads from Comcast, a cable operator in the region, according to a review of the files from the FCC.

“What this tells me is that – assuming the goal here is to get noticed by former President Trump – the ads are aimed at an audience of one, as opposed to an audience of thousands. or millions of voters, ”said John, a professor at Vanderbilt University. Sides, a political scientist who has written about the effects of television advertising on political campaigns.

“The math is if you can get to the president’s radar screen or gain his support,” Sides said, “then this approval will be worth the investment of buying ads in a media marketplace thousands of miles away. “

Old legend Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool to sign Borussia Dortmund starlet Jude Bellingham at all costs. Carragher suggested that Liverpool should start to focus on signing the England midfielder in the summer transfer window. Bellingham will cost Liverpool around £ 90million and stiff competition from other Premier League giants.

The 18-year-old box-to-box midfielder continues to grow as a future since his rise in German football last season. The former Birmingham academy graduate has been in sensational form for the Bundesliga giants this season. He has scored 3 goals and assisted 5 in 16 league appearances this season to keep his side alive in the title race. Dortmund are just 6 points behind leaders Bayern Munich and will go strong until Matchweek 34 to end the Bavarians’ winning streak.

Liverpool look to sign Jude Bellingham

Jamie Carragher urges Liverpool to choose Bellingham:

It’s no secret that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is looking for a next-gen midfielder in the upcoming summer transfer window. Liverpool lost Georginio Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain in a free transfer last summer and are moving into the current season without any replacement.

Liverpool could also lose 36-year-old James Milner, whose contract expires after six months. Skipper Jordan Henderson turns 32 next summer, so investing big in a generation-defined midfielder will be a priority for the Reds over the next summer.

Liverpool have already identified a few targets and sent scouts to monitor their progress. Another prospect Liverpool is very interested in is Barcelona star Gavi. AS Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni is also on the Reds’ radar. Former Liverpool defender and Sky Sports expert Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool should focus on Jude Bellingham next summer.

Dortmund sold another England sensation, Jadon Sancho, to Manchester United last summer for £ 77million. Star striker Erling Haaland is also on leave this summer when his £ 64million release clause is activated in the summer. Dortmund failed to keep the Signal Iduna Park young prospects and that proves a major difference between them and Bayern Munich.

Bellingham has already made 10 appearances for the Three Lions and was part of the recently concluded Euro 2020 setup. It will therefore cost £ 90million minimum, almost twice to Gavi and Tchouameni, but the Reds will benefit from having a native player in their midfield. Liverpool are also feeding youngsters Harvey Elliot and Curtis Jones with consistent first-team rotation chances.

OPEN FOR THE FUTURE: Work is being carried out on the entire network to protect the 200-year-old watercourses.

The Canal and River Trust is investing £ 16.5million to carry out repairs, upgrades and specialist maintenance work on the historic North West Waterways this winter.

Part of the program, which is expected to end in mid-March, includes works along the Ashton Canal in Droylsden.

The works include new lock gates and a ladder installed at Lock 13 (Crabtre Lane); new lower lock gates installed and masonry repairs at Lock 15 (Clayton); and repair work and new resin grouting to improve the condition of the lock chamber at Lock 16 (Edge Lane, Droylsden).

Winter projects span the rest of the canal system, including the Huddersfield Canal in Uppermill and the Peak Forest Canal in Marple, as well as the Leeds and Liverpool Canals and the Shropshire Union Canal.

Major projects also include securing the long-term restoration of the Toddbrook Reservoir at Whaley Bridge.

The Canal and River Trust, which operates 2,000 miles of waterways nationwide, is the custodian of over 380 miles of canals and rivers in the northwest, as well as hundreds of locks, bridges, aqueducts, tunnels and reservoirs.

Most lock gates need to be replaced every 25-30 years and are individually custom made from sustainably sourced European holm oak, handcrafted in the Trust’s specialist workshops in Bradley, West Midlands or Stanley Ferry in Yorkshire.

Daniel Greenhalgh, North West Regional Director for the Canal and River Trust, said: “Our job is to preserve and protect the country’s precious man-made waterways.

“With many canals in the region built over two centuries ago, it is important to maintain regular maintenance and keep the waterways in good condition.

“We always try to minimize inconvenience to boaters by doing this routine work during the winter months.

“Research proves that people feel happier and healthier by the water’s edge and during the pandemic in particular, the waterways have offered a valuable lifeline for so many, providing perfect places for recreation. and local exercise.

“That’s why it’s so important that we keep them open and safe for everyone to use, whether people like to walk by the water, ride a bike, go boating, paddle or fish.

“Canals are also great spaces for wildlife, promoting biodiversity, which is particularly important in urban areas. “
