This image shows the final beam lift at Carrington Bridge this morning [October 28].

The huge steel girders - which are new to the UK but widely used across the rest of the world - are said to be more weather resistant.

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

The A4440 Southern Link Road is used by over 30,000 people each weekday and is one of the county’s busiest stretches of road.

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.
