M6 interchange, view north (see all photos of the same view)

This view highlights progress on the new bridges across the M6. The latest to be completed, at the bottom, is actually still awaiting its parapets and railings. A large mobile crane is on site and preparing to lift steel beams, seen on the left, into position on the viaduct.
