Project: Culvert replacement in Otway Ranges with all-terrain crane

The purpose of this project was the positioning of precast concrete culverts to replace old culverts on a public road in the Otway Ranges. This was done for the Colac Otway Shire Council. A 55-ton all-terrain crane from our Colac base again was the crane chosen for this lift as the confined area and tree canopy caused minimum access for cranes with a larger footprint.  The 55-ton used a short boom configuration which allowed the 9-ton precast units to be installed without any damage being caused to the overhead tree canopy.
