A TIME-lapse movie showing how builders put nine sections of bridge in place as part of Doncaster’s Southern Gateway Improvement Scheme along the A6182 White Rose Way has been released.
The short film shows how the major feat of engineering took place using one of the biggest mobile cranes in Europe – the 1,200 tonne Sarens Gottwald AK680-3.
The lifts took place on days and nights agreed with Network Rail between December and February. The new bridge spans 17 rail tracks including the East Coast Main Line.
Peter Dale, Doncaster Council’s director of regeneration and environment, said the footage showed the complexity of the job and why rail track possessions and road closures were required for it to be completed.
