Following a delay due to traffic movement alterations, the scheme to improve the flow of public transport and enhance pedestrian and cycling facilities at one of the key gateways into Liverpool City centre has now been completed.
Originally greeted by a confusing labyrinth of roads which were difficult and dangerous to cross, the project aimed to resolve the issue by re-organising the way people move about the city with an emphasis on walking, cycling and trees.
Jones of Oswestry ARBORSLOT were specified as part of the design procedure.
The multi-million-pound project, around Lime Street and St George’s Hall, was originally put on hold in October 2021 when the Nottingham based principal contractor NMCN entered Administration.
Having already supplied a large quantity of standard ARBORSLOT recessed tree surrounds with central tree apertures to the original contractors, Jones of Oswestry worked together with Liverpool based contractors, H A Civils Limited, to design and manufacture a further quantity with bespoke offset tree apertures when the project re-commenced.
Fabricated in mild or stainless steel the Jones of Oswestry ARBORSLOT incorporates a series of recessed trays for paving infill, allowing for the continuation of the paving up to the actual tree aperture whilst providing suitable aeration and drainage facilities to enable the tree to flourish.
Available in any size, to suit any type of infill, Jones of Oswestry ARBORSLOT have also been specified by numerous Landscape Architects due to their inherent strength and quality and Disability Discrimination Act features.
