Bridging the Highways 1966

23 mins United Kingdom Director. John Byrd

The M6 motorway never looked so beautiful! TV presenter Raymond Baxter extolls the virtues of new techniques in steel bridge manufacture, every one painted in a colour designed to blend in with the scenery. The growing use of structural steel for faster and more economic bridge building in Britain's highway programme is demonstrated and steel bridges in all parts of the country are shown.
