EYE SPY WITH MY LITTLE i

ON THE BEACH: BUCKETS, SPADES, SANDCASTLES – BUT A TOWER AND A CRANE? MARGO COLE EXPLAINS

Throughout last summer, the south coast city of Brighton and Hove gained a new – and somewhat unexpected – tourist attraction. A 600Te crawler crane parked on the beach for 12 weeks. Thousands of people turned out to watch the crane in action, much to the surprise of its owner Sarens, which usually carries out its lifting activities far from the public’s gaze.

“We are normally on construction sites, so we don’t usually work with the public,” says Sarens project manager Simon Crawley, who claims to have been at major football matches with smaller crowds than those watching on in Brighton. “This was not a normal environment for us.”

The crane, a 600t-capacity Terex CC 2800-1 lattice boom with luffing jib, was parked on the beach close to the city’s famous fire-damaged West Pier. It was positioned so that people could still access the beach in front of it, as well as walking past when it was not in use.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
