Gas pipeline crosses South Wales

The 120km Milford Haven to Aberdulais gas pipline stretches from the foreground to the horizon.

Workers are craned in a man-basket into the cofferdam to carry out excavation.

Temporary steel cofferdams are constructed on both sides of the River Usk to enable the tunnelling machine to bore beneath the river so that the pipeline can cross it.
