The Dock Traffic Office

ITV Granada has announced that it is moving its Liverpool news team out of the Dock Traffic Office and into the Liver Building. This allows National Museums Liverpool to develop phase two of the International Slavery Museum at the site.

Phase one, comprising new galleries focusing on the transatlantic slave trade, will be built in the adjacent Merseyside Maritime Museum building, with a link bridge running through to the Dock Traffic Office. In there will be a resource centre for the understanding of transatlantic slavery. This second phase opens in 2010.
