Lifting of the Wembley arch has continued steadily since last week and the arch is now standing at 60infinity to the horizontal. The target is 90infinity by the weekend. Restraint cables tensioned from jacks have now been attached to the opposite side of the arch to the lifting cables, to support the structure when it moves beyond the vertical. At this point the turning struts will be removed. The lift is still on target to be completed within six weeks. The stadium will act as the centrepiece of a 17ha residential and leisure development for which planning permission was granted this week.
