The bridge starts from Bowtrees roundabout at the end of the M876 and is over 1km in length. Crossing the river as a wide single carriageway, it passes through disused coal yards of the old Power Station site, through adjoining farmland before again joining the A977 in a double roundabout junction at Gartarry.
The new 608 machine has been hired out to Morgan Est who are utilising the machine specifically to lay concrete edge protection sections on the bridge deck. Weighing in at 3.2 tonnes each these sections are easily handled by the robust machine. The highly manoeuvrable Sennebogen 608 operates efficiently and safely within any environment providing Morgan Est with a reliable, cost effective multi-purpose machine.
Donald Steele, Mechanical Plant Manager, commented "This is a truly remarkable piece of equipment, and an all round winner in every task it has been required to do. With the flexibility of a mobile crane, the agility of a telehandler and the mobility of a mobile work platform, it gives the site tremendous scope for multi tasking with one machine"
