Giant crane removal
The appearance of the Project 150 site changes daily as work forges ahead on the construction of this £33 million transformational development and none more so than today. The giant tower crane that has dominated Eastbourne’s skyline since March 2016 is now being removed. It has stood 30 metres high and has had a jib spanning 56 metres. It has stood on a 250 tonne concrete base and the sports hall development has been built up around it.
It is a highly skilled job and it has taken weeks of planning and preparation. It is probably just as well the dismantling has been taking place over the holidays as it would have created a bit of a distraction for the English and Maths departments.
