These photos cover the route of the new canal link in sections, from south to north, from Canning Dock to Trafalgar Dock.
Inside the new tunnel in front of the Cunard Building at the Pier Head. The tunnel was constructed as a steel-reinforced concrete box culvert.
At the other end of the tunnel, the canal link opens up again in front of the Liver Building.
Looking back through the tunnel, with the Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building on the left.
The open section of the canal link in front of the Liver Building will also have tiered stone seating.
At St Nicholas Place, the canal link enters a third tunnel and turns a little to the right, heading for Princes Dock.
The tunnel heads away towards the blue coach, before curving to the left to emerge into Princes Dock in front of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
