Infrastructure project

in Moscow

Crawler crane impresses in

bridge construction

For the Russian company Mostotrest, which specializes in bridge and road

construction, this means a lot of work – also involving a Sennebogen 3300

crawler crane.

A new junction on the Moscow Expressway is the west-east con-

nection of the city center via a new expressway route.

The crawler crane is used for the numerous lifting tasks around

the construction project. In the current construction phase, a mul-

ti-lane urban highway is being created that is elevated on stilts

and is to relieve the existing road network.

In the future, traffic is intended to roll into the megacity on

several road levels. The concept includes numerous grade-sep-

arated exits as well as the expansion of the Moscow Ring

Motor Road.

The entire reinforced concrete structure will have a

road length of over 3,000 m, including all exits. In addi-

tion, there is a lot of supporting and foundation work

to get the Molodogvardeiskaya expressway into shape

for the future.

The machine is equipped with a 48 m long main

and fly boom with working heights of up to 74 m.

During the three-year construction period, the

crawler crane lifted hundreds of precast concrete

parts weighing tons.
