Big Screen to be Dismantled

 

Liverpool’s Big Screen is set to be removed after coming to the end of its operational life.

The digital screen, in Parker Street, was installed more than 12 years ago but has not been used by the BBC since early 2014 and is currently turned off.

The structure has come to the end of its design life and some of the screen panels are not working or serviceable as parts are no longer manufactured so it cannot be put to meaningful use.

It is one of the last remaining big screens which were rolled out nationally by  Phillips Electronics UK. They will remove the screen at no cost to the city council.

Preparation work will start on 8 May with the main removals work taking place on the evenings of 10and 11 May,

The pavements where the screen stood will be fully reinstated.
