Alleyway improvements begin

Over the last six weeks, there have been workers conducting alleyway surface surveys to understand the condition of the alleyways in County, Anfield and Kensington wards.

In addition to these surveys, drainage condition works have also been undertaken in County ward. To date Liverpool City Council has camera surveyed and cleaned out over 1.5 miles of sewers to record their condition and ensure that they are flowing correctly.

A number of test ‘dig sites’ have been marked up around County ward. Tests at these sites will determine the condition of the ground and sewers before the replacement works commence.

As part of the alleyway repairs, Liverpool City Council will also be trialling a number of waste and recycling storage and collection options in certain streets. These trials, with the support of local residents, will hopefully identify a suitable storage and collection service.

Cllr James Noakes, Cabinet Member for Street Scene, Transport and Highways, Air Quality said;

“New storage and waste solutions will hopefully stop the need for waste to be deposited in the alleyway and therefore address the problems that some residents are currently experiencing, but we need residents to be aware of the part they can play.”
