TIMELAPSE: Massive bridge beams lifted into place at Stanton Cross

Video: Six huge bridge beams are lifted into place above the railway line at Stanton Cross in Wellingborough.

Stanton Cross is a major residential led development set to deliver 3,650 homes, employment areas and shopping facilities for Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.

The rail and river bridges are integral parts of the first major road route in Stanton Cross, Route 4.

The six bridge beams are each a massive 41 m long and weigh over 30 tonnes apiece. They were lifted into position using a rare 1,100-tonne crane. There are only three of these cranes in the UK.
