Britain’s newest and most advanced terminal development has suffered an embarrassing setback.
Launched in November, a large sinkhole has appeared at the £400m Liverpool2 container facility, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The terminal’s operator Peel Ports has confirmed that a “cavity” has opened up at the terminal and a portion of the area has been cordoned off.
“The terminal remains open although the access to the area affected is restricted. The crane commissioning is continuing as planned,” a spokesperson told the local newspaper.
