A big Crane is coming...nice timing

April 22, 2003

I contacted the crane and barge companies today.  I wanted to know if they could send me technical specifications on their equipment (i.e. dimensions, capacities etc.).  Preparations at the Trans Canada bridge construction site are underway to accommodate the arrival of the 80 square foot barge.  The crane is owned by Irving Equipment and the barge is from Quebec and is owned by Group Ocean.  The 230 ton capacity crane and barge should be arriving in the next few weeks. 

I also went out to measure the clearance under the existing CPR bridge (NB trail) to see if the barge and crane could safely pass under it to get to the wreckage site.  It would seem that there is no problem to get it thru.  This is relatively good news.  If the barge and crane could not pass under the bridge it would have been a costly issue.
