The Gallery | Lithuania's largest steel bridge lifted into place

Specialist heavy lifting contractor Mammoet has released images of a three-day operation to lift a 600 tonne bridge into place across the Numenas River in Lithuania.

The structure - Lithuania’s largest steel bridge - was transported and installed across the Alytuas Park valley in the city of Ayltus.

The 300m-long pedestrian bridge was transported in three sections by Mammoet.

Lithunanian construction company Alkesta was commissioned by the Lithuanian Government to build the bridge, which connects the two banks of the river in a nature reserve. The crossing will make the area more accessible for local residents and tourists.

The original bridge was destroyed in the First World War.
