A Massive 580-Ton SLJ900/32 Bridge Girder Erector Putting a Large Segment of Road Into Place

A series of videos by Funny & Amazing Planet capture the massive 580-ton SLJ900/32 bridge girder erector placing a large segment of road connecting city of Chongqing and the Wanzhou district in China. The SLJ900/32 was designed by the Shijiazhuang Railway Design Institute.

Parts one, two, and three of the series each give different views of the machine in action. An animated video explains in detail how the huge machine works as it reaches out and moves the next road segment into place.
