Friends of the Flyover

Campaigning to deliver our designs for Churchill Way in Liverpool – an oasis for people to socialise, exercise, meet & connect with other parts of the city.

The 2012 SIF (Strategic Investment Framework) document for the city proposes the removal of the Churchill way flyover. 2 flyover structures run from Islington, sweeping past the rear of the library and World Museum though to Dale Street and Tithebarn street with a number of walkways beneath them.

With costs estimated at between £3-4 million to orchestrate the removal of these structures, it would be a shame to see this level of funds spent with little in return. The city’s desire to remove this brutal structure and it’s dank and threatening pedestrian routes is totally understandable. What if there was a far more exciting and affordable alternative to demolition that really added something to the city?

We Make Liverpool’s vision of ‘the Flyover’, sees the highway gifted to the people, following removal of traffic and the creation of a pedestrian and cycle-friendly promenade in the sky.

With the addition of planting, kiosks, cafes, lighting and power infrastructure, this route of hustle, bustle and speed is transformed into a thriving oasis and green lung in the centre of the city, an iconic attraction for residents and visitors.
