Transportation of two bridge tower sections, Australia
ALE has transported two bridge tower sections, each weighing 220t, in Sydney, Australia.
The two bridge tower sections were moved approximately 17km north, from the outskirts of Western Sydney to Rouse Hill.
ALE transported the two bridge tower sections using 18 axle lines of SPT and two ballast trucks.
One of the most challenging parts of the operation was to transport the SPTs nearly 1,000km, then assemble the equipment and perform the first of two moves within a six-day window.
The bridge tower sections were fabricated in a workshop that had restricted space. This meant patience and skill were required to manoeuvre the sections out of the workshop.
