Queen's Quay scrapyard, Belfast
Queen's Quay scrapyard, Belfast
Before the redevelopment of Queen’s Quay J3474 : Queen's Quay, Belfast (2008) the scrap quays extended as far as the Queen Elizabeth Bridge J3474 : The Queen Elizabeth Bridge, Belfast. As can be seen, the equipment used in maintaining the pile often encroached onto the public road. The red crane (bottom right) has an electro magnet used in placing scrap on the pile. This needs skill to ensure that the pile is properly positioned for loading on the ship and to avoid a collapse of the material. J3474 : Trees, Queen's Quay, Belfast (May 2015) shows a similar view 26 years later.
