John Brodie, best known as the designer of the Mersey Tunnel, was also a town planner and the inventor of the goal net. First used in a football match in 1890 in a game between Nottingham Forest and Bolton Wanderers, it proved an instant success. Brodie served as Liverpool's City Engineer 1898-1926 making several proposals for the improvement of the city's roads, including the construction of an inner ring road - Queen's Drive. He also patented the idea of prefabricating houses from reinforced concrete slabs and introduced the idea of using central reservations for tramcars. The first reserved track, Edge Lane to Broad Green, was completed in 1914 and was followed by many others. We have him to thank for the many wide, tree-lined avenues in Liverpool's suburbs, one of these, Brodie Avenue, is named after him.
