Meet China’s Bridge Building Machine

Behold, the heavy industry SLJ900/32 mobile bridge building machine! The 580 ton, colossal machine created by Beijing Wowjoint Machinery Company measures at 91.8 meters (301 ft.) long, 7.4 meters wide and nine meters high, this mean machine is building in a way we’ve never seen before. Viewers watching the video above can see that the SLJ900/32 operates without conventional crane technology. Instead, the machine travels to the edge of the bridge of the installed segments, then reaches out to towers yet to be connected to the bridge with a temporary track. Once the track is stable, the machine pulls itself out with the new bridge segment in tow. Once fully extended with the track and at this point reaching another bridge tower, the SLJ900/32 lowers the new bridge segment in place for the construction crew to begin their work. Once this new segment is secure, the process can be repeated. This machine sure is a magnificent mechanical feat!
