Folly Railway Bridge construction
The first overnight possession (closure of the railway) has started.
The Liebherr LG1550 mobile crane has lifted the first bridge beam, but it remains suspended whilst additional counter balancing is attached. The smaller mobile crane is being used for this.
(This will allow the reach of the crane to be increased.)
