More pictures of the bridge that has collapsed next to Barton Bridge on the M60 have been released.
The bridge consists of four huge pillars that were supporting a platform. It is believed the platform was being lowered this morning at 9.30am when it collapsed. No injuries were reported.
Astonishing before and after pictures show the scale of the collapsed bridge that was supposed to eventually carry a dual carriageway over the Manchester Ship canal.
Witnesses reported hearing a loud bang and said it felt as if there was an “earthquake” in the area.
It appears a concrete platform being constructed between four 31-metre (93ft) high pillars fell to the ground on Monday morning.
The structure is part of a new lifting bridge which will carry a new dual carriageway over the Manchester Ship Canal, joining the Trafford Centre on one side to Salford.
Reports are coming in of a major structural collapse at the construction site for a new road near the Barton Bridge.Read the full story ›
