Churchill Way Flyovers Deconstruction Scheme

Start date: September 2019
End date: 
December 2019

The Churchill Way flyovers have been successfully dismantled over a four-month period.

The two flyovers, which connect Lime Street to Dale Street and Tithebarn Street, were taken down using a unique process designed to minimise vibrations and protect the art and cultural collections housed in the nearby World Museum Liverpool, Walker Art Gallery and Central Library. The work was carried out by our contractors Amey and Graham at a cost of £6.75m. 

Pedestrian diversion route

A pedestrian diversion route will take people via Dale Street and Hatton Garden to Great Crosshall Street back to the LJMU campus. Alternatively, people can walk up William Brown Street and across Lime Street to Hunter Street.
