Wiltshire motorists warned of abnormal load

Motorists are being warned of an abnormal load that is likely to cause congestion as it is transported from Wiltshire to Hampshire on Monday.

The steel framework will be escorted by police from Brook Lane, in Westbury, to Eastleigh.

The journey will begin at 05:30 BST on the B3097 The Ham, before continuing on the A363 towards Yarnbrook and along the A350 northbound.

It will then travel to the M4 through Melksham and Chippenham.

The transporter and its load will be 6.25m (20ft 6in) wide and weigh a total of 46 tonnes.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: "Due to the size of this transporter it will be slow moving and will have the potential to create congestion.

"Wherever possible, disruption will be kept to a minimum but hauliers and motorists are asked to please be patient if they come across this load."
