Extreme Dangerous Transport Skill Operations Oversize Truck

I saw a documentary once on German television that covered the transfer of a tunnel boring machine from the manufacturer somewhere in Southern Germany to the building site in the Swiss alps. They also covered the preparation (planning the route, talking to all relevant authorities, taking down traffic lights, removing parked cars, changing bus or train time tables, etc.) and the aftermath (covering the damages to the corners of buildings, replacing flower beds, etc.) All of that in a densely populated area. In 1992, Mammoet loaded the Saltire offshore platform topside out onto the sea going barge at the AMEC fabrication yard at Wallsend on the UK's River Tyne (previously the William Press yard). The Saltire topsides weighed approximately 9500 tonnes. The load out process took around 6 hours, excluding welding of sea-fastenings. On arrival at the field location, Saltire's topsides was subsequently lifted onto its jacket in the North Sea by a single crane barge lift. I have worked in the trucking industry, now for most of my life. I find this very interesting, I can only imagine the nightmare of, paperwork and the permits, that are needed for hauling these types of loads
