Abandoned housing surrounds the Chernobyl nuclear site where a new confinement structure called 'the arch' is being built. This is the light building on the right of the image. Once complete (est. 2017) it will cover the sarcophagus, a steel and concrete shield originally built, over the damaged reactor No. 4, in the aftermath of the 1986 nuclear explosion. As well as covering the damaged reactor the 'arch' will also be used to store contaminated waste from the site.
