Mill Street works for Shakespeare North Playhouse

by Lisa Bennett

Ground investigation work in preparation for the construction of the Shakespeare North Playhouse will be carried out on Mill Street in Prescot.

The work is scheduled to start on Tuesday 28 August and is expected to take three days to complete.

Mill Street will remain open to pedestrians and vehicles during the works, although there will be some temporary restrictions in place.

The investigation work will help to establish the ground conditions in specific and key areas of the construction site and the findings will provide further information to the preferred main contractor, Keir Construction, who will be designing and constructing the piling elements of the ground works.

Geotechnics Ltd, will be carrying out the work.

The Shakespeare North Playhouse is an iconic new theatre and education space that will celebrate Knowsley’s links with Elizabethan drama and Shakespeare himself, attracting visitors and students from all over the world.
