Very often the main roads through Western Australia’s tropical Pilbara region are closed at night to allow huge loads like this to be transported to one or the other of the various mining area. During the day they pull in to specially designed rest areas to sleep. It was amazing the number of people who were pulling in to have a closer look (just like we were doing!) This monster was part of a 4 vehicle convoy and had a prime mover (as seen) at the front and a similar pusher vehicle at the back. It had 486 wheels and we know it only covered about 50 kms the next night because we saw it again in another parking area the following day. I have a few more photos of the rest of the convoy to follow.
