'Abnormal load' travelling through Wiltshire on Sunday

Drivers in Wiltshire are being warned to allow extra time for journeys tomorrow as an oversized transporter travels through the county. It will be escorted by police officers.

The transporter and its load will measure 6.25 metres (20ft-06ins) wide, 4.0 m (13ft-02ins) high with an overall length of 25.0 m (83 ft) and gross weight of 46 tonnes. Because of its size it will be slow moving.

The journey will begin at 06:45pm from Westbury, from B3097 The Ham – Hawkeridge Road, before turning right A363 towards Yarnbrook, then turns left onto the A350 Northbound, heading towards the M4 at junction 17, via Melksham and Chippenham. The load then will travel Eastbound on the M4.
