Roads - M26

Persons, Manpower, Labor, Transportation, Automotive This crane, helping remove the viaduct from M26 near Lake Linden, wasnt exactly on the beam today, but it was pretty close. The machine was loading beams from the reinforced concrete viaduct onto a truck when too heavy a load toppled it into this undignified position. It took another crane and one small truck crane to get it back on its feet. The bucket in the picture was not being used, since the beams were being removed in a cable sling. [Image of the crane on its side. Several workers look on.]
