Our form travellers are ready to assembly, thanks Mersey Link: "Form travellers will be used to build the deck of the main bridge between the bridge pylons. They will act as movable concrete moulds for the deck spans. The form travellers will be assembled on the cofferdam and then lifted by a hydraulic system to the bridge deck level where they will be fixed in place. After the first span has been cast it is then connected to a stay cable and the pylon for support.The two form travellers are then separated and moved to the next span position, so the deck effectively ‘grows’ from each side of the pylon until the main bridge deck is complete" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owclo4Bbh-A&feature=youtu.be
