Allelys, the haulage company responsible for transporting the abnormal load vehicle has said the third and final transportation is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 28 February 2024, between the hours of 00.30am and 05.45am.

A rolling road closure under police escort will be in place while the vehicles are in transit and sections of the road will be reopened as soon as the vehicles have passed through. A number of pedestrian traffic light signals, street lighting columns, road signs and other street furniture will be temporarily removed as the transportation will overhang the footpaths along the route. These will all be replaced upon completion of the transports.

Parking will also be prohibited along the route during this time and any cars that remain parked while the vehicle is in transit will be removed by the police. A letter drop to affected residents will be carried out by the Haulage company who are solely responsible for transporting the components.

It must be noted that cancellation of these movements is possible if road surface temperatures are too low.
