Superload from Glen Waverley to Dundonnell 7-11 August

31 July 2019

From 10pm Wednesday 7th August to 8am Sunday 11th August, a 370 tonne superload will be travelling from the Wilson Transformer Company in Glen Waverley to Dundonnell in Western Victoria. 

This is a complex operation so please keep clear during transit and when parked up. Safety is our number one priority so there are no designated viewing opportunities available.

The load will be travelling in stages across four days and nights to minimise disruptions.

Plan your journey

The transport vehicle is over 370 tonnes and over 80 metres long which means it must travel at a very slow speed of only 25km/h.  At over five metres wide, it takes up the entire width of the road, so can’t be overtaken.

We’ll have a crew on site for the whole operation, making sure your roads stay safe during and after the move. They’ll be assisting to get the vehicle safely around corners, temporarily removing signage and lights, placing steel supports over existing drainage and then putting everything back in place once the superload has passed through.  

The planned route for the superload is subject to change.
