Liverpool's Knowledge Quarter gets 6m face lift

Metropolitan Cathedral plans
A new public space is set to be created in front of the Metropolitan Cathedral

Liverpool's Knowledge Quarter, is to have a further £6m spent on it in an attempt to improve the poor condition of its streets.

Council bosses claim the area around Mount Pleasant, which includes the Metropolitan Cathedral, will be "connected to the heart of the city".

The project will create a new public space in front of the Metropolitan Cathedral.

It is the the third and final phase of the area's regeneration project.

A dedicated cycle route will be installed on Oxford Street and following consultation with Liverpool John Moores University, improvements will be made to the paved areas on Maryland Street, outside the Students Union building and the library.
