See J3474 : Weir and cross-harbour links, Belfast (22). Taken from almost the same spot as the previous shot but turning a bit more to the east. Piling, for the foundations of the elevated road and railways bridges, had started beside Donegall Quay. This area was reclaimed back in the 1700s and is known for the (in)famous Belfast sleech As I recall the foundations went down to 60 metres (almost 200ft) to secure a proper grounding.
