Steel piles are installed in the harbour for the new bridge. The piles in the foreground are for the future rest pier – the place the end of the bascule span sits on when it is in the closed position.
In the coming weeks, concrete will be poured for the new bridge abutments (bridge foundation) on the west side.
The new bridge will be located just north of the existing bridge, creating an area for a new waterfront greenspace.
