250t mobile crane used in Dubai metro bridge lift

A Liebherr 250t mobile crane has been used in a twin lift on a 140t pedestrian footbridge gantry for the Dubai Metro at Jumeriah Lake Towers Station.

A 250 t capacity Liebherr LTM1250-6.1 telescopic crane from Al Faris Equipment rentals is being used by the J.T. Metro Joint Venture in a twin lift of the 32m long x 10m wide x 6m high steel footbridge spanning the four lanes of the Sheik Zayed Road at Jumeirah Lakes Station.

Weighing 140t, the gantry was lifted and positioned on 'stools' alongside the Sheik Zayed Road for fitting out. Once completed, the bridge will be manouvered into its final position in a hydraulic lift.

The Liebher LTM 1250-6.1 mobile crane features a 15.5m – 72m telescopic boom and has a maximum lifting capacity of 250t at 3m radius. It also features a 108m maximum lifting height.

The six-axle mobile crane offers improved operating safety in the travel mode and has a top speed of 80km.

The Dubai Metro is claimed to be the world’s longest fully automated rail system and will open later this year.

Main contractor for the Dubai Metro is the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Corporation, Obayashi Corporation, Kajima Corporation and Yapi Merkezi Joint Venture.
