Mersey Gateway Project

After detailed site surveys and planning meetings the MBI140 has arrived on site at the Mersey Gateway Project. The bridge has been designed to relieve the congested Silver Jubilee Bridge, thereby removing the constraint on local and regional development and better provide for local transport needs.

With a short lead in time for machine delivery challenges presented themselves, but Wemo-tec UK ltd was able to source a machine through our Pan European network from our operation in Portugal. Working on the central section of the bridge the machine is helping with the installation of drainage pipes ready for the Bridge opening in September 2017.


Thieves overturn telehandler

Two men were arrested after they stole a telehandler in the UK and then managed to overturn it as they made their escape. The machine was stolen from Thimbleby, near Northallerton in North Yorkshire, late on Monday night, and then spotted following a car on the road to Darlington. The police were called out and caught up with the thieves on a small bridge over the River Tees between Dinsdale and Girsby, where the driver had managed to overturn it. 

After thieves crashed a Stolen Tele Handler in Dinsdale, Wemo-tec UK Ltd were contacted to supply a safe means of access to assess any damage that may have been caused. After surveying the site and consultation with the local authority the MBI70 was selected due to the light weight and flexible nature of the machine.  The inspection went perfectly and repair works can now be planned knowing there will be no hidden surprises.
