First cradle is dismantled on Tower Bridge

The first ALPS Space Frame platform (cradle) under the West Walkway has been dismantled on Tower Bridge.

It takes two full nights to dismantle each platform, after the first night, the partly dismantled platform has to be raised again and then lowered the following night, when it is then completely dismantled.
