Liverpool's Award Winning Concrete
Linking the bottom end of town with the business district (which is safely kept away from the rest) is a series of flyovers and raised walkways for pedestrians and vehicle traffic. Neither are pleasant, though both are busy with traffic, powered both by engines or foot. The walkway pictured is the step-free access to the pedestrian walkway known as Churchill Way, looking towards 151 Dale Street, a nice art deco building which now houses offices. Oddly, on one of the pillars holding the walkways up carries a plaque which declares that the structure won a Concrete Society Award when it was built in 1972.
