PICTURE OF THE YEAR 2017

We have dozens of images to select our favourite from this year and have many worthy candidates.

This striking image was taken in the autumn where we were installing and new bridge deck spanning the M180 motorway close to Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire.

Working for integrated highways services company, A-one+, our Heavy Cranes Division used a Liebherr LTM 1500-8.1 to lift the 24.3 metre long beam.

Once the preparation work was complete the 500 tonne crane lifted the 64 tonne precast bridge unit into place carrying out a perfect 90 degree swing to lower it onto the pier.

A-one+ is a shared joint venture between Ch2m, Colas and Costain carrying out maintenance and repairs on motorways and trunk roads on behalf of Highways England.
