The multi-million pound revamp of Lime Street is finally coming to an end.

The project, which began in October 2020, has been hit by delays, criticism, a pandemic and the collapse of the contracting company selected to carry out the work.

The radical redesign of the area includes a new cycle lane and bike shelter, an expanded plateau and new crossings for St George’s Hall, a new bus link, 33 new trees and new public realm and seating.

With the final resurfacing phase due to be completed by the end of July, we take a look back at the iconic area of Liverpool with a series of photos that span more than 200 years.
