Tins Bridge turns out to be too long - or more likely, the abutments weren't put in correctly. They'll have to take out some big chunks of reinforced concrete and re-lay them, then try again. All fixed in #30171.

Oh how embarrassing. The new bridge over the Tins is lifted into place, only to find it is about 40cm too long.

Even though it wasn't constructed properly, the lifting of the bridge gives a good impression of what the new cycleway will look like at The Tins

Even though the bridge isn't right you can see what the new cycleway along the Tins will look like now

Before they lowered it into place they feared it was going to be too big....
