Liverpool commuters could face more misery this week due to emergency repairs at the Liverpool One bus station. Electrical repairs are being carried out at the roundabout next to John Lewis. Merseytravel is warning that the work could cause some delays. The work is unconnected to the ongoing work to repair a gas main on The Strand, which has caused long delays for drivers over the past few days. Yesterday The Strand was gridlocked amid confusion over signage.
The Strand is gridlocked this afternoon as motorists avoid using the bus lane they are now allowed to use . Southbound traffic near the Hilton hotel has been reduced to two lanes as work continues to find and repair a gas leak. But one of those lanes is a bus lane. And while the council told the ECHO earlier that people would be able to use that lane, drivers appeared to be reluctant to do so. That means that even at mid-afternoon, traffic was backed up right into Leeds Street.
One of the bus lanes on The Strand will be suspended while roadworks that have snarled up the city centre road continue. The Strand was reduced to two lanes this morning as work to find and repair a gas leak went on . But one of those southbound lanes was a bus lane, meaning all southbound traffic on one of the city’s busiest roads was being funnelled down one lane.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
