New crane 'UCrane' arrives at Westmead

Posted 14 Nov 2016
UCrane Bolt, our new crane, works on the multi-storey car park

The Westmead Redevelopment has welcomed its newest addition to the project team — UCrane Bolt!

Last month the Westmead Redevelopment asked the kids of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead School to give our new multi-storey construction site crane a name. Workshops held in the primary and high school classrooms delivered a range of options for the crane’s name but UCrane Bolt was a stand out.

UCrane is 34 metres high with a reach of 74 metres and has a base which is 1.7 metres deep which required six concrete trucks to fill!

You can currently find UCrane hard at work down at the multi-storey car park construction site. When he’s not busy lifting, you can catch him tweeting about his activities on Twitter (@UCraneBolt).

Stay tuned for more upcoming information about UCrane Bolt as we prepare for an official welcome to Westmead!
