This is the first section of the steel girders on the south side of the river that was set-up. This section is 7.3 metres in length and 2 and 1/2 tonnes in weight and is only a third of the full bridge span.
This photo is giving you the view of all the bolts used to keep each section together.
This is the view of one of the 8 bearings set in the bridge supports to give the flexibility the bridge needs.
This is one of the 2/3rd section beam on the north side of the river and a cross section is being attached. This girder is 38 metres long and the weight is 22 1/2 tonnes.
Here we can see the first long girder getting lowered into place. This is a crittical moment for all concerned when lowered they will find out if it is balanced correctly if not the rigger on the other side won't be able to fit the bolts.
Success, the beam slotted into place first time, it was a very slow process but it hadn't to be lifted out again to reset. the photo isn't very clear but a rigger is on the other side bolting both girders together.
Both the northside of the main beams across the river have now been fitted, this photo is giving you a closer view.
