Triskelion Way to lead travelers to the island

The road leading to the Isle of Man ferry terminal in Liverpool has been named Triskelion Way by Liverpool City Council.

The name was chosen to mark the journey made by passengers traveling to and from Manx shores while recognizing the island’s historic maritime link to the town and wider region, and reflects the significant investment made by the government.

Its road sign was unveiled by Mayor of Liverpool Joanne Anderson at an official ceremony on February 25, attended by Chief Minister Alfred Cannan, Infrastructure Minister Tim Crookall and James Whittaker, representing Liverpool developers Waters Peel L&P.

Mr Cannan said: “Providing a Manx connection in the name of the road leading to our new ferry terminal is a very thoughtful gesture and one which I am sure will be appreciated by travelers for many years to come.

“The Isle of Man, of course, shares a strong history with Liverpool and I’m sure this will only strengthen the affection people have for a city that many consider a real home.”

Ms Anderson, who lived on the Isle of Man in the 1990s, added: ‘I am very happy that Triskelion Way has now been officially named.

“This road is a further symbol of Liverpool’s special relationship with the people of the Isle of Man and will help connect families and friends for generations to come.

“The new ferry terminal is a very welcome investment in the city’s North Docks by the Isle of Man Government and I wish it every success when it opens next year.”

The ceremony was part of a two-day trip to the North West by the Chief Minister, which included meetings with Liverpool-area Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham and Henri Murison from the Northern Powerhouse Partnership.

James Whittaker, Executive Development Director of Peel L&P, said: “It is fantastic to see the Isle of Man Ferry Terminal take shape, and we look forward to the completion of the project and the passengers enjoying it. state-of-the-art facilities in a new building that will serve generations of travelers for years to come.

“Not only is this project vital to the Isle of Man and the City of Liverpool, it also connects Princes Dock to the emerging Central Docks and plays a key role in the wider regeneration of Liverpool’s waters.

“This new road, Triskelion Way, which joins the recently adopted Jesse Hartley Way, is one of a series of critical infrastructure projects being carried out in Central Docks.

“Together with our partners, we are investing in active travel infrastructure, a public realm and new green spaces, paving the way for the delivery of an exciting new neighborhood with thousands of new homes alongside leisure, community , commercial and retail.”
