Crane Accidents

Crane Just Couldn’t Bank on This One


New Zealand

A short cut with a 30-tonne crane ended with the Hawke’s Bay Expressway being blocked for more than two hours yesterday. The crane, being used by contractors Smithbridge on the construction of the Kennedy Road overbridge, flipped backwards as it negotiated a short, steep bank and its boom crashed across the expressway, closing both lanes during peak hour traffic.
