Melbourne, VIC – Crane supply company 600 Cranes has assisted in the installation of safety barriers on Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge. The company provided a Tadano ZE290 truck-mounted crane to complete the project, led by John Holland Construction.
Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge, spanning 2.6 kilometres and five lanes in each direction across the Yarra River, is one of the busiest bridges in Australia. The bridge connects the heart of Melbourne with the city’s western suburbs and has undergone numerous strengthening and maintenance construction projects over its nearly 50-year history. The bridge recently underwent the installation of new safety barriers along its edges, a difficult task that required state-of-the-art safety systems and specialized tools to ensure project success.
The construction company in charge of the overall project, John Holland Construction, required the use of a truck-mounted Tadano ZE290 crane. The crane itself was designed for use on uneven terrain and for situations that require significant amounts of strain – such as fitting the barriers alongside the West Gate Bridge, which required operation in a tight space and detailed safety checks to prevent collapse. Through supplying the powerful and sturdy Tadana ZE290, 600 Cranes helped to provide an important new feature to the West Gate Bridge.
600 Cranes is an international crane supply and service company, distinguishing themselves in the Australian, New Zealand, and Pacific Island markets through their dedication to customer service and sustained relationships with clientele. The company not only operates in sales but the installation, maintenance, repairs and inspections of all their cranes beyond the initial sale. This, according to the 600 Cranes team, is what sets them apart in the industry and has contributed to their reputation as the most reliable crane supplier in the area.
The company offers some of the leading industry brands, including Fassi and Tadano truck-mounted and marine cranes, Jekko mini-cranes, TAM and Marrel hooklifts and skiploaders, as well as a variety of Idrobenne crane attachments. Their experienced team fits and installs new machines and provides detailed service to a crane throughout its lifetime. Through this, customers can avoid soliciting help from third-party service companies who may lack the supplies or experience needed for proper maintenance.
The installation of safety barriers along the West Gate Bridge has been an important undertaking in the structure’s history. 600 Cranes has also provided other cranes for use on the bridge and is dedicated to continuing their service for one of Australia’s most important road corridors, both now and in the future.
