The ‘Friends Of The Flyover’ project are raising money in an aim to turn Liverpool’s Flyover into a beautiful urban park. Much like New York’s Highline park, it could offer the city a thriving green space in the heart of the city and an iconic attraction for visitors.
The Flyover is the ultimate in urban re-purposing & regeneration, delivered by citizens coming together to conceive, develop & implement.
The plan is to take an existing structure and create an urban walkway/park that costs less its proposed demolition. The Friends of The Flyover vision is to deliver a public space of benefit to residents & visitors, connecting neighbourhoods & civic buildings with the rest of the city & world famous waterfront.
Churchill Way is two roads & two pedestrian routes; current plans to redirect traffic mean there is a proposal to demolish the structure. It doesn’t seem right to spend £3-4 million & see nothing in return, so we used our design talent to propose something different.
FOTF held a series of public presentations & been overwhelmed with the positive response from councillors, council staff, museums, businesses & people from all walks of life throughout the city.
Their next step is a full feasibility study and this is what they are raising funds for with this Spacehive project. Now’s the time to pledge and help get this project off the ground.
