Final Stages For Twin Sails Bridge

The last sections of steel for the new Twins Sails Bridge have arrived in Poole.

The five sections of steel form the final part of Poole's landmark structure being assembled on site in Hamworthy before being installed across the Backwater Channel in September.

A total of 800 tonnes of steel has now been delivered to the construction site since March. 
Cllr Elaine Atkinson, Leader of the Council, Borough of Poole, said: "The delivery of the last sections of steel marks another milestone in the delivery of Poole's much-needed second harbour crossing. It means that we will shortly be able to take great pride in seeing the full bridge stretching across the Backwater Channel."   

Jim Bright, Strategic Director, Borough of Poole said: "The delivery and assembly of 800 tonnes of steel is a major logistical and engineering achievement, especially as this work is currently ahead of schedule. We hope to continue this momentum as we make the final preparations for the public opening of the Twin Sails Bridge in early 2012."
