Mediacity:UK Construction at Salford Quays

Mediacity:UK is expecting to be completed by 2011. From looking on the website they have a long way to go. The BBC will be moving many of its departments from London up to Manchester (technically Salford Quays). After a little research it is quite exciting to see the UK finally getting a “Media City”. This photograph was taken on Monday evening. It was very warm and humid and Ciaran persuaded me to take the bikes out and ride down to Salford. The weather was really overcast and cloudy, but you can just make out a warm orange glow where the sun was setting behind this construction work. I took this photo not only as a record of the building’s construction, but also because I had never seen so many cranes so close together like this.
