Local Paper No.36 – Building The Itchen Bridge
Authors: Paul Ravenscroft and Jim Brown
A pictorial account of the building of the massive Itchen Bridge, based on 1,500 slides taken by the late Paul Ravenscroft during every stage of its construction. Paul took views of the advance work carried out on both sides of the River Itchen in the 1970s, when the area resembled a war zone, and this shows now vanished Supermarine Works and Floating Bridges. The slides show how the 62,000 ton bridge was constructed in sections and assembled, involving many thousand man-hours, and when it was opened in May 1977 and officially named by Princess Alexandra that July.
