100 Tonne Gantry from Goole to Gatwick

Busy weekend in Goole as our Mercedes-Benz 8x4 Arocs SLT heads out with a 100 Tonne gantry destined for the M23 Smart Motorway Upgrade Programme.

Motorway Delivery for Mercedes Arocs

This 54.8m long gantry is the second, and the largest, of the four to head out of our Goole Heavy Lift Depot.  Accompanied by our Code of Practice Escort Vehicles, the double bogie trailers set off on the 250 mile trip to the development site.

Scheduled for evening delivery, and with motorway closures in place, the 100 Tonne gantry will be lifted by 500 Tonne mobile crane for installation over the carriageway. 

The M23 is a crucial part of the UK strategic road network connecting Crawley and Gatwick Airport to the M25 motorway, routes into London and the rest of the UK. This stage of the project sees the upgrade of an 11 mile stretch of the M23 near Gatwick Airport, between junction 8 and 10, to an all-lane running smart motorway.
