Second Severn Crossing, M4 Motorway, New Passage, Pilning and Severn Beach, South Gloucestershire. A view looking west from the top of a bridge pylon during the construction of the Second Severn Crossing, showing a space awaiting a deck unit to connect the sections of the bridge and Wales with England.
The Second Severn Crossing took four years to build and was a joint civil engineering project between Laing Civil Engineering and the French company GTM. The work started in April 1992 and the opening ceremony later took place on 5th June 1996. The crossing is a cable-stayed bridge which stretches over 5000 metres across the River Severn, 3 miles downstream from the Severn Bridge which opened in 1966
