Luxembourg's blue bridge saw the first blocks of its second pillar put in place on Wednesday, slightly later than expected.

The temporary bridge is being constructed in the Pétrusse valley to provide an alternative for traffic when Pont Adolphe is closed for expansion work to adapt it for the tram.

Progress on the blue bridge was set back a few hours when delivery of a 400-ton crane was delayed. The device was reportedly being used on a German construction site prior to being transported to Luxembourg.

On Thursday, two steel beams will be extended from Avenue Marie-Thérèse over the valley and will be attached to the new pillar.
