Lime Street to remain closed as The Futurist is still not safe

PART of Lime Street in Liverpool is to remain closed until midnight, on Tuesday, 31 May 2016, due to the condition of the derelict former Futurist Cinema. Structural experts say the risk of building collapse has not yet been eliminated due to the complex nature of the structure and the progressive failure of individual elements. They have advised the Futurist is still in a precarious state and condition, and the City Council must take all necessary precautions and guard against risk to maintain public safety by keeping Lime Street closed. In order to prevent any risk to the public, the road will remain closed in both directions until midnight on 31 May.

A Council spokesman said:- "The decision to continue with the road closure is not one that we have taken lightly. The Council recognises the inconvenience caused to motorists and businesses, however public safety is of paramount importance. We would like to thank people for their continued patience, understanding and co-operation."

The closure is from Skelhorne Street to Copperas Hill with pedestrian access maintained on the side of Lime Street opposite the Futurist. People attended the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, on Sunday, 29 May 2016, were advised to use the train to travel into Liverpool.

The following diversions are in force:-

For traffic travelling from the South - Berry Street, Leece Street, Rodney Street, Clarence Street, Russell Street, Seymour Street, London Road and Lime Street.

For traffic travelling from the North - London Road, Seymour Street, Russell Street, Clarence Street, Rodney Street and Leece Street.

Traffic travelling up St Johns Lane - Lime Street, Commutation Row, Hunter Street, St Anne Street, Norton Street, Seymour Street, Russell Street, Clarence Street, Rodney Street and Leece Street.

►  For motorists on Lime Street (between London Road and Georges Place) who have missed the advanced signage, the alternative route is: right onto St Georges Place/St Johns Lane, Whitechapel, right onto Victoria Street, Byrom Street, right onto Hunter Street, right onto Norton Street, Seymour Street, Russell Street, Clarence Street, Rodney Street and Leece Street.

There is a secondary diversion route for motorists on Renshaw Street who have missed the advanced diversion signs on Berry Street: Copperas Hill, Seymour Street, London Road and Lime Street.
