Community invited to name gantry cranes
Community members from Victoria Park through to Beckenham are invited to help name the custom-built gantry cranes that will build the elevated rail for the Victoria Park-Canning Level Crossing Removal Project.
Open to anyone who lives, studies or works in the project area, the naming competition provides the community with the opportunity to get involved in this transformational project.
Everyone who enters a pair of names goes into the draw to win one of five family tickets to the Perth Royal Show.
A colouring-in competition for local students provides another chance to get involved and win a prize.
Tasked with lifting the beams and concrete structures into place along the elevated rail, each gantry crane can lift 120 tonnes.
A pair is required to operate together for the project's maximum lift of 140t.
The four-wheeled giants are designed to minimise the project's footprint and help retain more trees and vegetation along the rail corridor.
The competition closes on September 10. More details can be found here.
