Harbour Office road has been tarmaced north of the concrete part.

More north end pipe pushing...
Pipes are joined together by collars
On the bridge deck, men stand by to ease the pipes through if necessary.
NB: new concrete mould set up east of the pipes.
Another layer of tarmac for Harbour Office road.
