During the month of August 2006, two giant floating cranes came especially from Rotterdam to Rouen to lift and install various heavy elements of the new bridge « Gustave Flaubert ». The sheerlegs « Taklift 7 » and « Matador 3 » lifted pieces weighing between 500 and 1200 tons each. The 2 central decks of this new road bridge can be lifted high to let sea going vessels pass under the bridge and reach the port of Rouen.

This was carried out using "Taklift 4" with a special rigging arrangement to prevent excessive load stress in the concrete structure. The swimming pool sections thereafter have been pushed on the river and through the locks upto the city of Paris for further assembly.
