Do you like heights and working outdoors?
If so, crane assembly is a job for you. The crane here will be 64 meters high. It is buried six meters under ground next to the Haninge mall. The counterweight weighs 17 tonnes. When the workers had come this far in the assembly of the giant crane the guy in orange helmet started shouting. It is the wrong number, we have the wrong part up here! So another guy ran past me to see if everything was as it should be, and it was. The crane will be used during the renovation of the old City Hall building in Handen. It will be turned into an apartment building, the view from the top of the building is amazing. You can see Stockholm, the archipelago, and all the forests of course. Press here to see the building in question. I took this photo a few days ago and I'm happy to report that the crane is now up and ready for work. Today is Theme Day at CityDailyPhoto. The theme is Worker.
