World’s longest suspension bridge to retrace the journey of the Anzacs

The world’s longest suspension bridge is being built across the Dardanelles, retracing the journey of the Anzacs.

Australian crane company, The Men from Marrs, has been contracted to build a 600-tonne crane to help the construction of the world’s longest suspension bridge in Turkey.

The bridge is to be completed in 2022.

Director Simon Marr tells Ross Greenwood the project is “fantastic”.

“It’s an absolute cracker for us to be working in Gallipoli.

“It’s a completely different way of building. The last lift that we end up doing on the project will actually be the heaviest lift ever done by a crane at that height.”
