Footbridge links two Liverpool venues

Posted on by in News

nLiverpoolSep14Main contractor ISG has successfully connected ACC Liverpool to its new interconnected sister venue Exhibition Centre Liverpool with the installation of a 30t steel link bridge.

The linking of the existing BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena to the exhibition centre marks a milestone moment in the city’s journey to secure its future as a major international events destination.

Billington Structures’ operation to transfer 12 pre-fabricated steel sections to Liverpool, assemble them on site and lift the giant structure into place is part of the £66M Exhibition Centre Liverpool and associated four star Pullman hotel development on the city’s waterfront.

Alan McCarthy-Wyper, Managing Director of ISG’s Construction Business, commented: “While the bridge will not be handed over until the development is complete, the positioning of the steelwork marks a major milestone for this project.

“The bridge will form a physical and metaphorical link between Liverpool’s past and its future which will become a lasting landmark for the city.”

Bob Prattey, chief executive of ACC Liverpool, said: “The pedestrian bridge symbolises the next stage in the continuing success of ACC Liverpool as we join our existing building with an ambitious new facility.”
