Merseytravel has unveiled a £10M plan for a new Pier Head ferry terminal.
The building will replace a tent-like structure and should be completed in spring 2008 - Liverpool's city of culture year.Councillor Mark Dowd, chairman of Merseytravel, which owns and operates Mersey Ferries, said: 'The Mersey Ferries are the most popular paid for attraction in the region and we want to continue to improve the service by transforming Pier Head Ferry Terminal. It's vital we don't stand still.'Merseytravel has worked closely with English Heritage and World Heritage to minimise the environmental impact of the project, and to maintain views of the famous Three Graces from the river.Liverpool City Council are evaluating the plans and must approve the project before work can begin - as early as March 2007.
