Cadman Cranes use flagship Liebherr crane to install double-decker bus at school in Harwich, Essex

Using our flagship Liebherr LTM 1160-5.2 180-tonne mobile crane with 54t of counterweight, we assisted with the installation of a 14t double-decker bus at a local school in Harwich, Essex.

Due to its location, 200m of temporary road was constructed to allow access across the school playing field, and the seats of the bus were removed prior to installation to help with keeping the weight down.

Managing Director Matthew Waddingham said: “We’re only 15 miles down the road and with projects like this, that will make a positive impact in our area, we try and help wherever we can. This was a real community effort though with school children, teachers, local news and Harwich residents all contributing to this achievement and I can’t wait to see the bus when they’ve finished it.

From nationwide construction sites to local schools, our diverse fleet of mobile cranes and highly-skilled operators are the reason we are trusted by so many.
