A steel cylinder, disassembled into two parts, starts its journey on the road to Styria tonight starting at 10 pm, accompanied by support vehicles. The cylinder is part of an Andritz paper machine, which is supplied to Zellstoff Pöls, a pulp mill, for the production of environmentally friendly special papers.
The XXL heavy truck starts the transport at the border crossing Nickelsdorf. The special team will need two nights to navigate the 7.4-meter-wide and 170-tonne mega trucks over the highway. During the first night, the route leads over the A 4 East motorway, the A 2 South motorway to the S 6 Semmering expressway. At the tunnel “Ganzstein” the heavy transport will stop and then continue its journey on Thursday, 2nd August at 22.00. The XXL trucks will then move over the S 6 and the S 36 Murtal expressway to Judenburg / West. From there, they will continue on the main road to Pöls. In both nights, therefore, delays are to be expected on these routes, informs the Austrian road maintenance company Asfinag.
