Several people contacted police, expressing their concerns about how safe it is to drive under Kruse Smith’s crane, according to Rogalands Avis.

Per Rune Vatsvåg is the managing director of a company that specialises in cranes and lifting-gear, and one of 43,000 motorists that drive through the roundabout each day. He expresses his concerns about the crane sticking out over the lanes of traffic.

“I’m frightened that both parts of the load and crane could fall and injure people”, he tells the paper.

But there is no need to fear. Kruse Smith's crane has been inspected by an independent expert and deemed to be safe. And according to the State Roads Authority, no lifting is permitted over the lanes without traffic being stopped.
