Work has now been completed to erect the end walls for the New Safe Confinement (NSC) enclosing perimeter project, which has involved the building of a giant arch-shaped structure – tall enough to house London’s St Paul’s Cathedral.

Erecting the end walls will allow the sliding of the arch into its design position.
