The second of three super-sized loads carrying weighty transformers from Didcot power station came through our area today.
Travelling from Oxfordshire to Avonmouth Docks, the transformer was transported down Tog Hill and through Wick, where again steel plates had to be laid to reinforce the A420 where it passes over two culverts.
The convoy then came through Bridgeyate and Warmley and took the ring road to the M32, before rejoining the M4 and going along the M5 to Avonmouth.
Again the load had to travel on the wrong side of the dual carriageway from the Bromley Heath roundabout towards Hambrook to avoid a weak bridge on the westbound carriageway.
Allelys Heavy Haulage of Studley is transporting the transformers which are too heavy for the M4 near junction 19.
Again lots of spectators turned out to see the unusual sight today but if you missed it, the third load is expected to come along the same route next Sunday.
