With the help of Jones of Oswestry, Liverpool City Council have provided numerous Arborslots to cover 12 new tree pits within a new public realm scheme. This scheme is located on Leeds Street, Liverpool which links directly with The Strand, where the historic waterfront and Three Graces are located. The scheme is funded by the Regional Growth Fund via the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
The area has been dramatically transformed; previously this area was the subject of various complaints about anti-social behaviour, environmental problems and even hazardous waste. As a result, the area has been dramatically regenerated to provide a new segregated cycle link, environmental improvements including planters and trees, new street lighting and a cycle hire station. The scheme, designed by Amey and built by King Construction has received excellent feedback from residents and Councillors. The Arborslots protect the tree roots, provide a clean finish to the area and we are very pleased with the product.
