Churchill flyovers falling…

Work underway on removal of Liverpool landmark.

Footbridges have been dismantled as work gets under way on demolition work to bring down Liverpool’s Churchill Way flyovers.

Three work compounds were put in place around the site last week from Monday, August 26, with the first phase due to begin today. But by Sunday lunchtime part of a footbridge on the Birkenhead tunnel side – one of three sitting underneath the two flyovers – had already been partly reduced to rubble.

The flyovers, which connect Lime Street to Dale Street and Tithebarn Street, will be brought down in 25-metre sections.
