Day 12 – almost finished!

The bridge is really starting to come together now! Today we took down the temporary platform surrounding the right abutment, which has been there since the beginning. This meant we could start to finish the painting at the top of the abutment.

On the bridge itself, the final rebar was bent into place before lunch. This meant that during the afternoon, we could place and fasten the wire mesh on both sides of the deck.

On the left abutment, the final concreting was done, ready for painting and finishing touches tomorrow.

During the afternoon, the local bridge building team filled in the drainage channels under the two abutments with rocks.
