Note:

Above 4 kinds of concrete girders are produced at a large quantity in special pre-cast yard, then lifted onto special girder carrier by gantry crane and transported to proper position so that the launching girder can install girders. The construction way needs a large pre-cast yard but features short construction period and high efficiency.
