The Bridge during construction

Early days on the Bridge

The Bridge Under Construction

This picture is one of the earliest I have of the Bridge of the ship being constructed.  At this stage there is little by way of wiring installed (and there is a lot of wiring now in place) and the windows have protective coverings fitted.  Cable trays in the deck-heads can be seen, there are more below the deck.  See the images below for more information

Lifting in Consoles

A hole was cut into the deck above the Bridge (Deck 10) and all the consoles were then craned into Deck 9 (Bridge Deck)
