Why did HUGE cranes arrive in Liverpool today ?

More cranes arrived into Liverpool today as part of the Liverpool2 project.

We were in New Brighton to capture the cranes arrival LIVE on our facebook page, which you can watch above.

Liverpool2 is a £400 million investment to create a new deep-water container terminal at the Port of Liverpool.

Liverpool2 will enable the largest vessels to call directly in the heart of the UK

A benefit of having a new terminal is because 58% of the UK population live closer to the Port of Liverpool than Felixstowe, London Gateway and Southampton ports.
