Crane in place to lift railway bridge over the Rufford Arm

AINSCOUGH’s crane hire company have erected a giant crane in a field next to the Rufford Arm of the Leeds & Liverpool canal near Burscough in West Lancashire.   

The crane will be used to replace a railway bridge over the canal, the bridge carrying the Wigan to Southport railway line.
