It was an extremely complicated piece of work carried out with great skill and there was no small amount of tension in the air in the moments before the near 90 tonne structure left the ground. There were a few gasps, a ripple of applause and then up she went to be fixed to the two corner towers at either end of the main stand.
The dramatic moment the new truss appeared over our beloved old stand was captured from the Wheatfield Stand in a stunning piece of real time footage which you can enjoy by clicking here.
We will announce the next stages of the TRP at the beginning of next week when we will also be releasing the first of our time lapse videos from the last few weeks. We appreciate the patience and forbearance of all fans coming to Tynecastle this season as we progress with this truly historic project.
