New Bridge at Hayle
March 2012 (part 1)
Bridge deck, east side: the sides of the bridge are made up of pre-cast, shaped, reinforced concrete blocks.
Upright girders for west side...
The concrete blocks on the east side are largely complete, but the west side uprights need more work before the blocks are added.
North end - concrete work
Harbour Office road - masons work on new stone wall, while further north more concreting takes place...
Between the new wall and the new concrete there's access to the shore.
Between the Harbour Office and the Swimming Pool, a concrete side block awaits use.
