Traffic along the Mallee Highway between Ouyen and Murrayville slowed at times on Wednesday when two long transport trucks with articulated  trailer combinations containing steerable wheels came along the route.

The two extended trailer truck sets are on their long slow journey from Tasmania to South Australia carrying bridge parts for the South Road project in Adelaide.

Further long truck haulage is to follow along the route.

Traffic on the highway slowed to almost a walk at times especially on the sharp corners associated with Duff’s crossing.

The two trucks which made the trek on Wednesday stopped at Murrayville because of the need to obtain extra fuel from various local sources.
