Hello,

@GopherT
I hope the region restrictions are not playing part.
The movement will take about 10 hours.
They started at 20.30 GMT+2.

That is quite a project. It is 30% of the weight of the US battleship Oklahoma sunk at Pearl Harbor.

It's just night time. Looks OK my machine.

A sudden snow-squall must have been passing:D. I just saw static when I checked in earlier.

Every so often they show a good close-up view of the transporter dollies and support jacks moving along; can't tell which end of the bridge it is, though.

For something that weighs 8400 tons, that thing sure is hauling ass...

Hello,

They are making the road under the bridge wider.
The old bridge would not allow this.
The bridge is a railroad bridge.
