North West Chairman QuoteThe region carries out regular CPD at Newton-le-Willows Fire Station, the regional Centre of Excellence. Seminars have covered Climate and Sustainable Architecture and The Trouble with Trees. Recently a tour of the Liverpool Queensway Mersey Tunnel was held for CABE members which consisted of a behind the scenes look at the famous Queensway Mersey Tunnel which opened in 1934.

As well as learning about the construction of the tunnel, the tour covered a visit to the original control room to see giant ventilation fans in action and watch the traffic in the tunnel, deep below the city streets.
