The Ship is expected to attract large numbers of visitors to visit and view her. As a consequence of this and in the interests of public safety and security, there will be a significant number of roads closed in the area for the duration that the Ship in is port.
General pedestrian access will be maintained where possible. Traffic orders are in place to support the road closures.
Canada Boulevard will be closed between St Nicholas Place and Water Street from Thursday 27 February until after the Ship has sailed on Friday 6 March. This closure will be extended on Saturday 29 February and Sunday 1 March for the whole of Canada Boulevard from St. Nicholas Place (Royal Liver Building) to Mann Island when the Naval Village is in operation.
Access will be maintained to the private car parking in St. Nicholas Place (Royal Liver Building) from Georges Dock Gates during these periods.
Due to the above restriction the right turn from Georges Dock gates into St Nicholas Place will be closed from Friday 28 February until Friday 6 March. A short diversion will be in place and traffic that needs to, will be able to access the area around the mast. This will
include access to Crowne Plaza.
Princes Parade will be closed between the entrance to the Cruise Liner Terminal Car Park to the junction with William Jessop Way, which includes the ‘Elbow Road’, from between 1900 – 2000 hrs on Thursday 27 February until after the Ship has sailed on Friday 6 March 2020.
Access will be maintained for residents and businesses via William Jessop Way / Princes Parade Junction. However there will be a further ‘hard closure’ on Princes Parade in front of No. 12 Princes Parade.
The car parks for the premises at No. 8 and 10 Princes Parade will also be closed during this period. Alternative parking arrangements for vehicles that normally use these car parks will be made on the land at ‘Plot 11’ on Princes Parade. Access to this car park will be to authorised vehicles only and passes can be obtained from Peel Building Management Offices.
During key times when the Ship is arriving/departing and during the Saturday and Sunday it will be necessary to close Bath Street. There will be a diversion in place for vehicles.
All closures will be signed and staffed. They will remain in force for the duration stipulated in the Special Event Temporary Traffic Regulation Order or such lesser time as indicated by the completion of the event.
This road will remain open during the event. Access to the multi storey car park will be maintained at all times and in the event this becomes full signs will be placed to notify public.
A one way system will operate with entrance via Bath Street roundabout and exit via the new road onto Bath Street going Northbound.
