Time Lapse: Building of M1 Bridge

Timelapse footage showing how some giant steel beams were installed during March and April 2016 to build the new B579 Luton Road bridge over the M1 near Dunstable in Bedfordshire. This work is part of Highways England’s A5-M1 Link Dunstable Northern Bypass scheme, which is due to be completed in spring 2017. Work to lift beams for a new junction 11A bridge over the M1 also took place at the same time and in the same area for this scheme.
