Meet Binyang, our newly named tower crane!

The 52-metre tower crane has officially been named as ‘Binyang’ at the Crane Naming Ceremony which will support construction of a new hospital building, as part of the first stage of the $790 million Liverpool Health and Academic Precinct project.

The traditional Dharug name means “bird” – celebrating the abundance of bird species found across the region. The winning name was selected from our Name the Crane competition, where more than 100 entries were received from primary schools across the region.

Competition winner Bella Bui and Green Valley Public School Principal Brett Warwick were awarded a $500 voucher at the event for their school to purchase educational resources such as sports equipment or library books – Bella was also awarded an individual $100 voucher.

Liverpool Hospital General Manager Karen McMenamin said the competition provided an opportunity for the hospital to engage with local students and schools during construction of the new hospital.

“Congratulations to Bella for being selected amongst such strong competition,” Ms McMenamin said.

“I’m hopeful that being part of the project will encourage some of our local students to think about a future career in health.”
