Multi Purpose Gantry (MPG)

Picture of one of the Multi-Purpose Gantry (MPG) that were fabricated especially for the works in order to facilitate the installation of the track route in the CTRL-Section 2 tunnels.

These MPG were designed to circulate on the concrete walkways that had been built by the tunneling Civils contractors prior to handover to the infrastructure Contractor C576 - ACT.
