Introducing the Iron Maiden

The Iron Maiden mid-construction.

Westmead Hospital has welcomed its third and final crane as part of the Westmead Redevelopment, the Iron Maiden.

Here are some interesting facts about our new crane:

  • Being a keen metal fan, the Iron Maiden is painted black! She enjoys many different variations of metal including steel, iron and aluminium.
  • While our other two cranes Cranye West and Sir Lift-a-lot are busy working on our new hospital building, the Iron Maiden is focused on the construction of the new main plaza entry to the building.
  • The Iron Maiden is a little shorter than our other two cranes, standing at only 62 metres high. However, size doesn’t matter! She’ll be just as busy as the other two, lifting materials approximately four to five times an hour.Now that all of our cranes are active and working on-site you will be able to vote for your favourite crane as we search for Westmead’s next top crane!
