The Christmas & New Year break also provided a perfect opportunity to do more work on the London Panoramas series. The last time I worked in this was about 8 months ago so I visited a very busy Trafalgar Square on Boxing Day and a very quiet River Thames on New Years day.
The QE2 Bridge was completed in 1991 to a design by the German Engineer Helmutt Homberg. It was to be his last project and he died a year before the bridge opened. The structure was built by the Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company (Part of the Trafalgar House Group) and with it’s main deck span of 450m it was, at the time of it’s completion Europe’s largest cable supported bridge, now superceded by the Second Severn Crossing amongst others.
