The Mersey – Looking from Bootle over the River to the Wirral
Of course, if the Port of Liverpool succeeds in gaining more trade the consequences swing back to that very knotty problem of land transport access to the Port, the over-capacity of the A5036 (Port to Switch Island road link), the lack of capacity of the rail link to the port (plus poor/limited regional rail capacity) and the new road proposed to be built through Rimrose Valley Country Park.

The contrast between industrial and dockland Bootle and the mainly leisure related activities of the Wirral waterfront can be seen in this shot, which also shows some activity on the River Mersey itself.
