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

The scale of the viaduct over the M6 is apparent here. More of the steelwork has arrived on site, at the left, and is waiting to be lifted. The steel beams have reached a point where the ends are now suspended over the M6 northbound carriageway - something that must have looked quite unnerving for traffic passing underneath.
