Johnson & Young recently deployed its Liebherr LTM 1750-9.1 for its inaugural lift on the Westgate Tunnel Project.
The $6.7 billion West Gate Tunnel Project will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge providing a much needed second river crossing, quicker and safer journeys, and remove thousands of trucks from residential streets.
The project is a partnership between the Victorian Government and Transurban and is being built by construction contractors CPB Contractors and John Holland (CPBJH JV).
Johnson & Young’s Liebherr LTM 1750 -9.1 managed the lift with 49.1m of main boom and a 204t counterweight. The crane was operating at a radius of 26.5 meters to lift the 52 tonne bridge beam into place. The Johnson & Young crew were delighted with the crane’s performance and how the smoothly the lift went.
