Liverpool City Council started an ambitious program of street renovation in order to improve city centre traffic either for cars, buses, cycles and pedestrians. GRAHAM Construction have been awarded numerous packages all over the city.
GRAHAM required various services, depending on the sites and the works involved.
From building a new access road on the docks, to demolish two flyover bridges or refurbishing entire streets of the city centre, GRAHAM had various geospatial requirements. Murphy Geospatial has been able to provide expertise on all aspects.
The variety of the requirements could have been a difficulty, but our years of experience in providing geospatial certainty helped. The variety of the sites and their own challenges made this project particularly interesting. Setting up sensors on a dock wall or monitoring a structure being demolished definitely challenged our teams.
Northern Link Road: A new access road on the dock was being built, leading to the future Isle of Man Ferry Terminal. We provided them with traditional topographical surveys but also geotechnical monitoring with vibrating wire piezometers and also tilt beams on the dock wall. Regular UAV surveys were carried out in order to provide update on the progress of the site works.
Churchill Flyover: This ageing structure was being demolished. We provided multiple surveys to support the team: laser scan and 3d modelling, sub-surface investigation and 3d structural monitoring (automatic and manual).

Highways Works: Major roads were planned to be revamped, such as the Strand, Victoria Street, Thitherbarn or Brownlow Hill. TO assist with this task, we were required to install Primary Controls and carry out topographical checks to assist with the design. Before and during the works, we also installed environmental monitoring sensors such as Noise and Vibration.
With the support from all company’s departments, Murphy Geospatial successfully delivered all requirements.
The survey results, real time monitoring and accurate geospatial data have provided the client with confidence in making decisions throughout the entire planning and progress of the Liverpool City Centre Connectivity Scheme.
