At twice the size of the previous roof, it weighs over 6,000 tonnes to cover every seat in the stadium.At 84m at its deepest point, the roof is covers 45,000 sq m and is believed to be the largest cantilevered roof in the world.
Over a four-week period, 8km of cable netting was lifted and connected to the roof, weighing a total of 930 tonnes.
Stuart Fraser, stadium transfer project director for construction company Balfour Beatty, which is installing the roof, said the project was “technically challenging”.
Costs have risen by £36 million because of the need to strengthen existing steelwork.
