Wide, Heavy Load

Last night we supervised the transporting of a shaft from the Mica Dam upgrade through #Revelstoke and across one of our bridges, the Eastern Access Bridge, over the rail right of way. This truck and trailer loaded weighed about 90,000kg and required specialist engineering advice to ensure that the load did not damage the bridge.
