Liverpool South Parkway

The project includes an excellent point of access to the national rail network; a single integrated booking office and information point, encompassing bus, rail and airport services; a bus station; a 24-hour high frequency airport link; a 240-space park and ride facility and secure cycle and motorcycle parking.

Environmental aspects of LSP include:

  • Use of waste and recycled products in the building construction instead of environmentally damaging materials, for instance waste slag in place of cement
  • Rainwater harvesting, aided by the distinctive slope of the building’s roof
  • Renewable energy systems, including geo-thermal heat pumps and solar photovoltaic cells, to reduce ongoing carbon emissions and energy costs.
  • These environmentally friendly innovations formed part of the case for funding.

Merseytravel continues to foster good community relations at the station. For example, local schoolchildren planted a wildflower area at the station in June 2007. The project has won a number of awards, not just from the rail sector but also reflecting LSP’s environmental and community credentials.
