Highs and lows of Orr's Presidential visit to Liverpool

ICE President David Orr got a Liver bird's eye view of the Liverpool before going subterranean on a visit to the Queensway tunnel during his top to bottom visit to the city earlier this month.

Orr went to the Liver Building roof to view the Pier Head development and the new cruise liner facility 50.9m below.

Later the presidential party visited Refuge G in the Queensway tunnel, 41m below ground. The refuge is one of a series of points in the tunnel where motorists can gather in an emergency.

Seven refuges were built into the tunnel in response to the Mount Blanc & St Gothard tunnel fires.
