Suspension bridge construction

Suspension bridge construction at sunset. This is the Second Severn Crossing, which opened in 1996 to carry the M4 motorway from England to Wales. It runs 5000 metres across the River Severn, with the central suspension span (its towers are seen here) being 456 metres. Either side of this central span are non-suspension spans (normal bridge sections). They number 23 on the English side and 22 on the Welsh side. The bridge was built from 1992-1996
