The pair dominate the skyline at the Brighton Road site, where work is underway to build the Bayside Apartments complex and 15-storey tower. They are currently called ‘TC1 Jaso J160 saddle-jib’ and ‘TC2 Jaso J160 saddle-jib’, but Roffey Homes has launched a competition to rename them.

A Roffey spokesman said: “The winner will have the honour of seeing their chosen crane names (including their own) splashed across the barriers surrounding the development.”

TC1 is the smallest, around 43m high with a 40m arm, known as a jib. TC2 is the tallest at around 70m high with a 45m jib. Both can carry five tonnes.

Facebook users have until October 31 to respond on the Bayside Apartments Worthing page.
