The image shows the new dual section of Carrington Bridge starting to extend out over the River Severn.

The new bridge runs parallel to the existing A4440 and has been installed with the road fully open.

The work is part of the fourth and final phase of the scheme to fully dual the A4440 Southern Link Road from Junction 7 of the M5 to the Powick roundabout.

The frame that will form the main bridge will be constructed in sections onsite before being lifted into place over a number of weeks.
