A14 bridge demolition at Swavesey captured through timelapse video

The moment a bridge over a major trunk road was demolished has been captured through timelapse footage.

The 40m bridge over the A14 at Swavesey, Cambridgeshire, was knocked down by six excavators in the space of a weekend.

It has been replaced with a new bridge a short distance away, as workers carry out a £1.5bn upgrade to the road.

The A14 is a major freight route, linking the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich on the east coast to the Midlands.
