Mersey Barrage – Infrastructure Design

Completed as part of a research project, this infrastructure design explores the opportunities and technical implications of a new Tidal Barrage across the River Mersey; designed to provide predictable, renewable electricity to the national grid. The design proposes that the public transport infrastructure is extended over the barrage, linking Liverpool, Birkenhead, New Brighton and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Located in the centre of the barrage, along the new transport link, is a Marine Energy Research Centre (MERC), a development with a hybrid programme, housing plant equipment for the barrage as well as office, research and accommodation facilities.
