Its a positive thing if it is truly sustainable, if it isn't sustainable it is a waste of money (but the developers and financiers will do alright out of it).

Another museum opening despite our track record of closing many museums.

A new plot of land being tidied up despite our track record of them ending up as either drop-out zones or going unmaintained.

The majority of the problem is not the Council, its the micromanagement and cuts by Central Government whose prime objective is to extract money from wherever they can to pass it on to developers and financiers etc.

I'm not against the basic concept of this project by any means, but when other essential services are not only being cut but also devastated, this is clearly not a priority. We have loads of parks and green space on the Wirral, we apparently have a shortage of urban building land and transport routes.

It is going to be unpoliceable, it is going to be unsustainable, we can't magic money and policemen from nowhere when the Council is in a position of continual cuts and more compulsory spending.

Clearance work has started on the site of the new Dock Branch Park to allow essential surveys to be carried out.

Construction on Dock Branch Park is expected to start in autumn 2023, with the park set to be complete early in 2025.

I am still looking forward to this project and the new visitor attraction operated by National Museums Liverpool.

I love the bit that says "The site currently provides a unique corridor for wildlife"

... the wildlife being copper thieves and the like.

The truth about this "Linear Park" development is now out, it appears they previously forgot to mention about the 1000 new homes that are part of this project. Is this going to be a park or a housing estate with a path through it?

These new houses around Hind Street have been talked about for a while so why wouldn't they connect them to the new park? It is part of the regeneration of Birkenhead.

As usual it is not going to plan, like the flyovers being demolished and Wirral Waters.

Hind Street and the Linear Park were previously stated as two separate projects but now they appear to be linking the two as one project which is a huge difference in the way the funding is attributed.

I still don't understand how the cross traffic is going to work without the flyovers, rush hour in the mornings could bring a new level of snarled up traffic. They can't plan Birkenhead/Wirral as a labour supply for Liverpool then cut the transport arteries in half.
