The first of four tower cranes has been fully installed at Bramley-Moore Dock, as the steel installation at Everton’s new stadium continues to gather pace.
The 60-metre high tower crane has been transported to the site in sections and rising into the skyline during the last few days. The first of four tower cranes required for construction will be fully operational in the north east corner of the waterfront site next week.
A further three tower cranes will be installed on specially built bases over the next three weeks in the north west, south west and south east corners of the site. The cranes’ first job will be to help pull together the steel structure that will form the shell of the new 52,888 capacity stadium.
The four concrete corners of the stadium are now at full height, minus the roof structure, and the northern corners will soon be connected by the emerging steelworks.
Steelwork will also soon begin to be erected at the southern end of the site as the footprint of Everton's new home begins to take shape.
Everton’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock is recognised as the largest single-site private sector development in the country, contributing an estimated £1.3bn to the UK economy, creating tens of thousands of jobs and will attract 1.4m visitors to the Liverpool City Region annually.
Once complete, the scheme will have acted as a catalyst for more than £650m worth of accelerated regeneration as Everton’s new stadium, alongside a legacy project at re-imagined Goodison Park, transforms North Liverpool.
