Exciting project for Liverpool! Both northern cities, Liverpool & Manchester are really pioneering ahead with fantastic supertalls proposals.

I'd love to live in a flat on the waterfront.
Looking at this last render shows how much potential for highrises and other development there would be in this area.

There are quite a few other tower proposals in the immediate area, if we can get these built, the place will totally change for the better.

And walking distance to the city center makes this even more impressive. Great views, great area.

Liverpool has so much potential, I'm really glad we're starting to see some decent proposals.

Proper height which is great. What is the general master plan for this area? There seem to be a lot of parking lots, ware houses, empty space etc there.

I agree! I personally don't see Liverpool & Manchester in competition, I see them as two amazing cities which are both booming, amazing projects in the pipeline and compliment each other well. It seems that the quality and renders all look very good for these projects also. As mentioned, the scope for further potential in and around Liverpool is crazy. Exciting times!

You're not wrong mate. Outside of football we are very similar, with great contributions to Britain's cultural, industrial, scientific and musical accomplishments. With better investment of infrastructure such as Manchester Airport expansion, the Mersey bridge and future high speed rail connections (which have to be done right and put Liverpool at the forefront alongside Manchester) god knows what can be achieved. Truly exciting times. Kings of the North.

I also agree about Liverpool and Manchester complimenting each other. After-all, with only 30 minutes between them by train, they are both in the same commuter belt.

Does anyone know if there are any plans to extend the railway line to Liverpool airport itself to avoid the bus section? This would encourage Mancunians to also choose Liverpool airport if alternative flights take off from there.

There need's to be. Its such a short section of track that would be needed to link the airport to not only regional and local trains but also the west coast mainline.

They are very similar in many ways, culturally particularly with the people of each city pretty much the same.

The politics however is a different kettle of fish and Manchester has basked in a more favourable position when it comes to government focus in northern England. That's not to suggest Manchester hasn't done a lot to move forward itself but having Whitehall on your side and being a base for a large swathe of the British Media (BBC, ITV) can only help now that we live in an era where soft power is king.

Still, despite that, Liverpool has come a long way too so in my view the only thing Liverpool needs now to allow it to work alongside Manchester to mutual benefit is for the political, ingrained decision making and northern centrist agenda's that seem to leave Liverpool having to fight harder to succeed, HS2 being the best example of that.

New Merseyrail station granted planning consent

The proposed development of a new station on Merseyrail's Northern line has moved a step closer with the award of planning consent for the £13m scheme.

Sefton Council's planning committee has approved plans for the new Maghull North station, which is earmarked for a site just off School Lane between the existing Maghull and Town Green stations on the Ormskirk branch of the line.

The planned station forms a key piece of infrastructure in the Sefton Local Plan, supporting demand from an adjacent new housing development that will include 370 homes with more properties planned for the area in the near future. It is also expected to relieve pressure on the town's existing station.

Gordon Friel, Merseytravel deputy chairman and lead member for rail, said: "It's great news that the new station development at Maghull North has been given planning approval as it will provide a real boost to the local community.

"It is another example of our long term rail strategy being put in to practice and will encourage more people to use public transport for both commuting to work and leisure activities.

"We look forward to working with our partners in Network Rail, Merseyrail and Sefton Council when the work to build the station gets underway later this year."

The £13m scheme is being funded through the government's Local Growth Fund, Merseytravel and the Homes and Communities Association, which currently owns the land on which the station will be built. It forms part of a wider £340m investment by Network Rail and the Liverpool city region into rail improvements over the next three years.

The proposed new station will include a staffed station building and ticket office with passenger toilet, passenger waiting facilities on platform, step-free access with lifts and a bridge connecting both platforms and the station, a 156-space car park, pedestrian and cycle routes from School Lane and Park Lane to the station and bus stops on School Lane, and future provision for electric vehicle charging points.

Ian Maher, leader of Sefton Council, said: "I am delighted that planning permission has been granted for the new Maghull North station.

"It is vitally important that as our towns and communities grow there is sufficient infrastructure to support them.

"The new station is not only fantastic for the local economy but will further improve public transport capacity and connectivity across Sefton and the city region."

Work is due to start onsite in August 2017 with the station opening in May 2018.
