Liebherr Gives Lifts to Iconic Arch
In Merthyr Tydfil



On Thursday 20th February the iconic steel arch which will support the new River Taff Central Link Bridge was erected.

The arch, weighing 136 tonnes and measuring 40.9 metres across its base and standing 18.5 metres high, required a 550 tonne Liebherr LG 1550 crane to lift into place. The steelwork was manufactured by Griffiths supply chain partner Mabey Bridge, based in Chepstow.

The operation commenced at 10 am and took 6 hours, attracting well over 200 spectators throughout the day and local press.

Leader of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Councillor Brendan Toomey, said: “This is a key stage of the construction of Merthyr Tydfil’s new River Taff Central Link bridge and it will be exciting to see the arch of the bridge being installed, as this will mark a significant point in our Regeneration Programme.

“With the growth of the College and the redevelopment of the Old Town Hall, the new road system will be able to cater for an increase in visitors to the town. It will improve access to Swan Street and open up additional areas for development on College Road.”
