THIS stunning footage shows a motorway bridge being demolished as part of a £174million project to improve infrastructure.

The stretch of the M3 has seen speed restrictions and narrow lanes for almost two years and Highways England says it is used to make more than 130,000 journeys every day.

Woodlands Bridge, between junction two for the M25 and junction three at Lightwater, will be rebuilt next year.

The section of road was closed over a weekend in November as crews carried out the work.
