Camperdown residents who think size matters will be able to catch a glimpse of a 663-tonne superload on Friday morning.
At 115 metres long, 5.12 metres wide and 5.5 metres high, the vehicle is the biggest superload to ever travel through south-west Victoria.
Moving at an average speed of 15-20km/h, the superload faced delays this week on route from Waurn Ponds to Beeac.
VicRoads acting director of heavy vehicle services Marc Paglia said this caused a temporary closure of Colac-Ballarat Road and added another night to the journey from Geelong.
“We’ve carefully planned this superload journey, but as you can imagine transporting a 663 tonne, 115-metre-long vehicle is a complex and dynamic operation,” he said.
“We thank the community for their patience while our crews made sure the load reached Beeac safely.
“To minimise disruptions to drivers and ensure safety over the next leg, we’ve made the decision to split it into two journeys over Wednesday and Thursday nights.”
Ian Quigley, a former truck driver from Warrnambool, caught a glimpse of the superload on route to Beeac.
“You cannot describe how long it is and it’s virtually impossible to take a photograph of the whole,” he said.
“It was amazing.”
It is expected the superload will be available for viewing in Camperdown from 1am-3am on Friday before reaching its final destination of Lismore.
