^^The Nirah project? Big fish tanks filled with sea life type things?
With the canal link, presumably the space that this would have used is now no longer available?Public realm amphitheatre at the foot of the Liver Building.
Permission was granted about 12-18 mths ago I believe.
No, not at all. It was supposed to be the icing on the cake to all the works which are going on, and housing a very posh restaurant.With the canal link, presumably the space that this would have used is now no longer available?
The only information I can find on it is from this article - http://entertainment.timesonline.co...tainment/books/non-fiction/article2693889.ece - from last October. In passing it mentions that the project has been abandoned. Given the all the news in recent years regarding the new Floral Pavillion and the proposed Morrisons etc in New Brighton, with no mention of the statue, it seems that it has been dropped.What about that big neptune statue that was going to be built in the Mersey a few years ago? Something in the back of my mind is saying it was given the go ahead but I may be wrong. I haven't heard anything on it for a while so i'm guessing it's been scrapped. Does anyone know?

By Mike Laycock
MORE than two years after top balloonist Per Lindstrand unveiled plans to give tourists a view of a lifetime from a tethered helium balloon 400 feet above York, the project has been grounded.
The company behind the ambitious project revealed today that it will probably now be another two years before it takes off - but insisted it will still eventually happen.
Jetville Ltd said the scheme had been shelved because it was part of a bigger, ongoing project in the city which was not yet ready.
However, a spokesman refused to identify the project, or reveal the prospective location which had been earmarked for the balloon base.
He said: "The balloon and the rest of the project work in perfect harmony, so I am therefore happy to wait.
"It will probably be another two years now, maybe 18 months at the most optimistic, but I am confident it will eventually go ahead and York will get this balloon."
I knew a girl like that once.Or even so large ships pass between the legs.
