From Spike Island
Near Fiddlers Ferry, Warrington

A stroll down by the river on what was a warm day but a nice cool breeze down by the river.
Most of the bridge building machinery has been removed looking as thought all sections are now joined. Across the river it appears that the wing extension machine has only about 4 or 5 sections to lay.
It appears that all the support cables on all three towers are now complete. Crane on North Tower was removing some scaffolding from the top of the tower so this may go within the next few days.
As seen on the photos after the road section on the North side, wind breakers have been fitted to the sides of the bridge.

Here are a selection of photo's from the visit.
