Insta-Bridge. Inner Secret Revealed

BridgeBlocks

Six concrete sections put together to make the heart of our bridge.

Six heavy trucks, each bearing a massive square of concrete, rumbled past. Hummm. What could they be hauling?

Anything to do with the bridge?

A short bike ride revealed the secret. They were hauling the bridge itself.

The squares of concrete were sections put together over the water like Leggo pieces. They even have tape over the joints like drywall. And they were placed there by super crane which visits our neighbourhood when there is a really BIG lift required. Still no hand shovels in sight.

Traveling super crane  set the bridge sections neatly in place.

So now do they just have to fill in the spaces and slap some paving on the road on top?

Next week we’ll see.
