Panalpina was recently contracted by Salini Impregilo (ISJ V), a leading global construction firm, to transport the two main towers of a new rail bridge for Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project. Transport for NSW, the authority that manages the transport services in the state of New South Wales, Australia and owns the project, tasked ISJV to build the bridge along with a four kilometer skytrain section between the Sydney suburbs of Bella Vista and Rouse Hill.

Each of the towers is 29 meters tall and weighs 210 tons. Because of their size, they had to be mounted on a special 18-axle, 55-meter long rig for a 17 kilometer trip under police escort from the manufacturing site in Glendenning to the project site at Rouse Hill. The route needed to be planned out down to the inch to make sure the truck and outsized cargo fit the streets and could turn around the corners. Upon arrival, the pillars were lifted by two cranes and secured to the deck using bolts in a precision night-time operation.
