This convoy is making the news in the Greater Toronto/Hamilton ares. Six massive (and I mean MASSIVE) beer vats are being transported via truck from Hamilton to the Molson-Coors Brewery in Toronto.
If you're interested you can read all the details from various media, just Google "Challenger Beer Vats", or the key metrics are;
The vats hold six million bottles of beer, are 7m wide, 8m high & 36m long. The operation involves 70 different organizations including police, hydro, cable, telephone companies from each region on the route. The convoy is 40 vehicles long, stretches over 1km in length and is the largest in Canadian history. They travel at night to minimize traffic and hydro disruptions to residents, and 250 traffic lights will be removed and over 1600 overhead hydro wires will need to be lifted or taken down.
The convoy passed through my village, Waterdown, on Saturday evening taking over 3 hours to travel 5kms. Quite a sight to see!
