Contractors have successfully lifted the main span for the new £3.75M pedestrian and cycle bridge over the M5 at Redhayes, despite delays caused by high winds on Saturday evening.
The 100m long, 230t twin-arch bowstring structure was craned in to place on Sunday.
Works will continue on the bridge, with the remaining side span craned into place next weekend.
The bridge, built by Carillion and designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff, is the first in the UK to be wholly designed using Eurocodes.
A full feature on the bridge lift will be published in NCE next week.
