Eric Wright Civil Engineering’s (EWCE) work will support the delivery of the first stages of the project.

The works will include construction of an upper boardwalk pedestrian and cycleway link along the northern dock edge of East Float, thereby creating a waterside thoroughfare

A series of four squares are planned besides extending the walking and cycling route that marks the boundary of the Northbank neighbourhood.

Eric Wright Civil Engineering managing director Diane Bourne said: “We are delighted to be involved in this transformational regeneration project constructing a sustainable transport network and high-quality green environment at Northbank, Wirral Waters.

“It is good to see the creation of a cycling and pedestrian network as an integrated part of the Wirral Waters development.”

Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters scheme director of development Richard Mawdsley said: “Northbank Quarter will be the first residential development at Wirral Waters and these public realm works are the first stage in creating a green, walkable, pleasant neighbourhood at the heart of Wirral’s traditional dockland area.

“So, we are very pleased to have selected EWCE to undertake the public realm works at the Northbank Quarter at Wirral Waters.

“It’s also great news that local construction students at Wirral Met will have the opportunity to see the works first-hand and speak to the contractors, giving them crucial experience and insight to prepare them for their careers in construction.”
