Bowmer and Kirkland have employed a traffic management company to carry out the required works to close Oldham Street and set out a suitable diversion for vehicles.
An issue we encountered being in a area surrounded by students and local nightlife in the city centre was the damage, theft and knocking over of the signage required for the closure and subsequent diversions.
To overcome this we have installed sturdy timber flower beds with the signage attached to them after agreements with Liverpool City Council.
The construction of the flower beds was funded by the traffic management company and the topsoil and flowers were kindly donated by the muck-shifting company we used on the site – Kealshore Ltd.
The photos show the finished product and these have been highly complimented by local residents and businesses.
Not only are the flower beds more durable than normal signage and make the site look a lot nicer, but it has given a local business an opportunity to advertise their company on the flower beds.
