A 50m-tall Ferris wheel is taking shape on Great Yarmouth's Golden Mile.
At the beginning of May trucks carrying the components of the new "Yarmouth Eye" moved into the Sea Life Centre gardens, where the wheel will be stationed for a three-year residency.
Last week, the structure began to take shape as a 10-man team began constructing the observation wheel's main columns and axle.
New photographs show how much work and effort goes into putting the impressive 18-spoked structure together.
The wheel is to be in place until 2025, with servicing taking place during the quieter winter months.
Observation Wheel UK director William Abbott said he hopes the tourist attraction will increase footfall and become a "true landmark venue".
Last year's wheel - belonging to a different company - was a popular destination for tourists and locals and could be seen from the Acle Straight.
