Touching Blue Ltd is currently working very hard, with partners, to develop a solution to the expected congestion on the local road network from the recent Peel Ports expansion of the Port of Liverpool by creating a Deep Sea terminal. Progress is being made and more detail will appear here soon.
The expansion is excellent news for the North West and UK, and will make the port more attractive to shipping lines. However, the expected growth in heavy traffic needs to be addressed before it becomes a barrier to growth, and impacts the local community and environment.
TBL has a close personal and professional connection with Sefton Council and the area around the port and this understanding is helping to develop a new long-term and sustainable solution.
It is a fact that economical arguments tend to outweigh community and environmental arguments but in this case, we believe a strong economical argument for a sustainable solution exists.
