A MASSIVE mobile crane has been on site for the Epping Road upgrade, helping to carry out important drainage improvements.

The 131-metre reach of the crane was used to build culverts under Epping and Lehmanns roads – concrete box pipes that allow water to flow under roads, trails and railways and provide an effective way to manage stormwater.

The crane’s boom length allowed it to reach over Findon Creek’s steep and wide embankments to lift the culvert units into place.

Major Road Projects Victoria program director Adrian Furner praised the work of the crane and the community’s cooperation.

“A 450-tonne crane has been on site to help us safely complete these important culvert works as part of the Epping Road Upgrade,” he said.

“We thank the community and all users of Epping and Lehmanns roads for their patience as we complete this essential work.”

Each culvert comprises the culvert units and link slabs, with each unit weighing up to 11.24 tonnes and the link slabs weighing up to 5.1 tonnes.

The upgrade team plans to install 30 units and 18 slabs, with temporary pumps and pipes also installed to help redirect creek flows.

Work on the culverts began in July and is due for completion later this year. For more information on the upgrade, visit
