Bridging Ninja gap
THE towers of Mt Midoriyama are rising in the shadow of the Westgate Bridge as Ninja Warrior Australia takes shape in its new Melbourne home.
A massive construction site has emerged in Spotswood on a former carpark lot near Scienceworks as the Channel 9 show takes shape ahead of its third series.
It is clearly visible from the Westgate and the bridge will be a Melbourne landmark making up the show’s backdrop.
On Thursday the towers were growing level by level and grandstand seating was being positioned, as this exclusive image shows (above).
The construction crew is not wasting any time; filming will start later this month.
The first and second series of Ninja Warrior Australia were filmed in Sydney.
