This completes the main roof framework for the stadium, being constructed by Alfred McAlpine Special Projects.
A pair of 1,000t capacity mobile cranes installed the 140m long, 160t triangular truss, which was located by four 30t chain blocks to align the substantial thrust-pins.
The large spans of these four main girders provide a totally clear view for all 25,000 spectators.
Client is JJB Sports, architect Atherden Fuller Leng, engineer Shepherd Gilmour and agent Archer Partnership and Robinson Low Francis.
