The new crane at New Crane Wharf in Wapping

The new crane at New Crane Wharf in Wapping

A WPH Marine Construction floating crane barge has been hard at work outside New Crane Wharf on the River Thames for the last three weeks.

The marine construction team have been carrying out repairs and renovations to the side of the warehouse and jetty which, should be completed by the end of this week.

Whilst in Rotherhithe today, we had to smile at the sight of a bright orange 100 foot NCK Andes crane helping to repair the side of New Crane Wharf, which itself boasts some of the finest cranes and hoists in Wapping and the Docklands:

We spoke to Ian who works for WPH Marine Construction and learnt that Wapping residents have been particularly hospitable to the team during their time working here. One kind neighbour even serves them afternoon tea in her finest china teacups. Bless.
