Victorian roads agency Vicroads advises of a superload duo to move from Melbourne’s east to Gippsland from December 6 to 9.

Two superloads will travel from Springvale Road, Glen Waverley to Yallourn in Gippsland.

Each load measures more than 50 metres from end to end and weighs approximately 260 tonnes. 

While these superloads are smaller than previous iterations, there will be two travelling together along the Princes Highway from Bunyip to Yallourn.

Delays are likely for those travelling: 

  • between Springvale Road, Glen Waverley and Princes Freeway, Bunyip after 10pm on Sunday 6 December and Monday 7 December.
  • between Bunyip and Yallourn after 10pm on Tuesday 8 December. The superloads will travel on the wrong side of the road for 40km from Main Neerim Rd to Narracan Creek on the Princes Freeway East. At 4.3 metres wide the loads cannot be overtaken along this stretch. 

Vicroads will have traffic management officers and load escorts travelling with the superloads for the entire journey, helping to manoeuvre the vehicle safely around corners, temporarily removing signage and lights and restoring them once the superloads have passed through.
