Liverpool City Council wants to double the number of cruise ships that visit the city so it plans to develop a new terminal on the Mersey to allow larger liners to dock and spill their throngs of tourists onto the streets.
The new cruise liner terminal will form part of a 60-hectare historic dockland site to create a mixed use waterfront quarter in central Liverpool.
Aecom will deliver the site investigation for the terminal, which will involve a preliminary desk study, overseeing and implementing a complex river and land based geotechnical and environmental site investigation and carrying out geophysical surveys followed by a jack-up drilling rig.
Doug Lewis, associate director & ground engineering lead, said: “We are delighted to be working closely with Liverpool City Council on this important project which will help encourage more investment and visitors to this iconic city. This project has already opened up other opportunities for Aecom along the River Mersey and we look forward to working with the council and its other stakeholders.”
