SD4764 : Bridge construction, Lancaster Canal

taken 4 years ago, near to Torrisholme, Lancashire, Great Britain

Bridge construction, Lancaster Canal
Bridge construction, Lancaster Canal
Milestone Bridge will carry the Heysham to M6 link road over the Lancaster Canal.
The mobile cranes are used to unload the pre-cast arch sections from the delivery lorries, and to lift them into position. Note that each span comprises 2 pre-cast sections.
The crane on the left has already lifted its next section into position. The crane on the right is lifting its next section into position to form the arch.
A just-in-time delivery schedule seems to be in use. The section on the right arrived less than 30 mins earlier. The next section on the left has just arrived (extreme left).
Work has continued into the evening (at least) using temporary floodlights.
