Ainscough lifts generators from Westminster Bridge

Ainscough has completed a job on Westminster Bridge Road in London SE1 which required the crane operator to lift three 17.4 tonne electricity generators onto plinths.

The generators were positioned within a basement cellar by an LTM1200 with a 35.8 m boom.

The crane was positioned on the approach to the bridge, between Belvedere Road and the River Thames. The area is often packed with tourists, but the road was already closed as a nearby roundabout was being resurfaced.
