Thanks VDB, there's talk of more stations at the moment too so hopefully we'll have a few more built in the coming years.

It would make such a huge difference.

Right now I never consider Liverpool Airport simply because it is too much of a hassle to get there by public transport. I live in central Manchester, so it shouldn't be as I have a direct train to Liverpool South Parkway from Deansgate station.

If there was a direct link to the airport, I would certainly consider it equally with Manchester airport.

I guess a part of that is related to Manchester's larger size and slightly closer proximity to London. This will always give Manchester a good nudge.

That said, Liverpool has more international fame and geographic beauty. It is a bigger attraction to tourists and a decent sized city in its own right. Liverpool should continue to play on it's waterfront location and build on its proximity to the seaside.

Yes, an airport link is fundamental.

With regards to the rest of your comment, Manchester is marginally larger as a conurbation thanks to being surrounded by large towns, as a city it is the same as Liverpool in size and has very similar infrastructure. Manchester was encouraged and indeed saw the opportunity to develop it's airport many decades ago as a 'north wide' airport and it continues to base itself on that notion which largely works. Like London however we have a enormous northern population and therefore Liverpool airport is well placed to be an equally sized airport to serve the north in tandem with Manchester airport.

Manchester is however not closer to London at all, it's equidistant with Liverpool hence the very similar west coast mainline train times for example. HS2 is a major argument at the moment as this will mean parity is removed, a bone of contention and quite rightfully for many across these forums and indeed amongst those who are watching a few suspicious and illogical moves to undermine Liverpool and indeed other cities and towns whilst, for whatever reason push a centralised northern power house agenda with Manchester the main beneficiary.

What is needed is for the rivalry to be removed and that won't happen i'm afraid unless Manchester stops seeing itself as more deserving than the other cities purely because it's managed to position itself better politically (to it's credit in some respects). The city has made many strides but it still has many of the socio-economic issues of its neighbours. What makes Manchester truly different is a cozy relationship with London which helps on many levels.

You should be able to pick between Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds airports just as a Londoner can choose between Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton etc. You should be able to work in any of those cities and be able to get a decent job rather than there be a mantra of "Liverpool just has tourism, Manchester will have all the finance & media etc" which basically means low paid jobs for Liverpool and better opportunities for Manchester etc.

There has to be a much broader and more ambitious agenda for each city equally so they have a chance to really grow and establish solid economic bases for themselves. These politically lead agendas that see some cities compromised for others, something which is ever more brazen only exacerbates the mistrust across the north of England between various cities and the only people who suffer are the people who actually live there, who in most cases are indifferent to what is happening around them.

DoI puts Liverpool ferry terminal design out for tender

The Department of Infrastructure is putting together a design team as it presses ahead with plans for a new ferry terminal in Liverpool.

It's asking for design consultants to tender for the work which would see new facilities built at Princes Half-Tide Dock.

The government will need new facilities for the Steam Packet company after Liverpool City Council announced plans for an international cruise liner terminal at the Pier Head.

In the tender documents, the government says it's appointed Manchester-based Turner and Townsend as project managers.

I think maybe a bit too much is made of this idea that Manchester is being favoured for all the best jobs in the North, if you look at the figures typical salaries in Manchester are very similar to in other Northern/Midlands cities.

From the Office of National Statistics

Median salaries for full time jobs as of April 2016 in:

Inner London £39,821
City of Manchester £28,313
City of Birmingham £28,225
UK average £28,213
City of Leeds £28,209
City of Liverpool £27,157
City of Sheffield £26,834
City of Newcastle-upon-Tyne £26,789

And in the wider urban areas...

Greater London £36,302
UK average £28,213
West Midlands county £27,246
West Yorkshire county £26,391
Greater Manchester county £26,113
Merseyside county £26,020
South Yorkshire county £25,859
Tyne & Wear county £25,781

Once you've paid tax on those salaries you end up with a typical Manchester worker taking home about £80 per month more than a typical Newcastle worker, or £60 more than a typical Liverpool worker, hardly anything in it really.

Meanwhile a typical worker in Greater London will take home £450-£550 more per month than a worker in the regional urban areas, going up to £600-£700 per month more if you compare Inner London with the core cities elsewhere. Of course they will have much higher living costs to contend with too.

And it's not like unemployment rates are much different either...

West Midlands 7.7%
Tyne & Wear 6.9%
South Yorkshire 6.6%
Greater Manchester 6.2%
Greater London 6.0%
West Yorkshire 5.8%
Merseyside 5.4%
UK average 5.0%

£3.2m revamp of landmark Liverpool Georgian terrace set to begin

Work is set to begin on refurbishing a Georgian Liverpool terrace which features on the ECHO’s Stop The Rot hit list of landmark buildings.

The nine town houses are situated in an L shape on Percy Street and Upper Parliament Street on the edge of the city centre, and are to be converted into seven family homes and four apartments as part of a £3.2m scheme.

They were taken on by developer Elliot Group after the company completed a deal with Liverpool City Council.

The buildings have been empty since 2008, when they were last occupied as bedsits, but Elliot Group say a listed building consent application is “imminent,” while hoardings have been erected to make the site safe.

I presume this will be between the existing "The Reach" development and those pictured above in the foreground? What is this foreground development?

Yeah, that's correct.

The building in the foreground is a separate proposal to replace the Lawton's building. It's been submitted to LCC for planning. See here for more images/info.
