Portuguese special transport company, LASO Transportes, performed a major heavy-lift operation over the A28 motorway in Portugal. The company’s heavy-lift division placed a 410-tonne viaduct over the motorway requiring the temporary closure of the road. 

The 42-metre-long viaduct is a crucial part of the new road that will link Barranha to Cruz de Pau. The operation was coordinated by LASO’s heavy lift team, which ensured that the project was carried out flawlessly.

To move the viaduct, the heavy lift team used a state-of-the-art self-propelled truck equipped with 20 axle lines, a strategic choice for extremely heavy loads travelling short distances. This remotely operated equipment required a high level of precision and attention on the part of the operators, guaranteeing safety and efficiency throughout the process of positioning the viaduct.

Operations of this scale require rigorous planning and the selection of the most qualified professionals. The success of this project was due to the commitment and dedication of the entire team, which carried out all the stages efficiently and, above all, safely.

“This operation demonstrates the importance of continuous investment in equipment, innovation and new technologies. Without the extensive investments made every year by LASO, we wouldn’t be able to respond to projects of this magnitude,” said the project coordinator. “We are all proud to be part of an operation that will have a real impact on people’s daily lives.”
