IT’S been a feature of the northern skyline of Tamworth for nearly a year, but this week we farewelled the biggest crane to work in Tamworth.

The 40-metre tall crane, with an 86-metre long boom, has been on site at the Tamworth hospital since October last year and was dismantled at the weekend.

Due to the size of the crane, a smaller crane was called in to dismantle it.

Construction of the first section of the hospital’s redevelopment is complete, so the crane is no longer needed in Tamworth.
