Ale’s Mega Jack for Matagarup Bridge in Australia

Ale recently lifted two 400t and 120m long steel wishbones, which form the central arch of the Matagarup Bridge in Perth, Australia. To do this, the British company used barges on the Swan River to float the structures to the piers and then used the Mega Jack to lift them. The first one was completed on 27th April and the second one on 12th May. The new bridge, reaching 72m above water level, will connect eastern side of Perth city with the Burswood Peninsula, where a new 60 000 seat stadium was recently opened.
