In my travels through rural and remote Australia I see quite a few big trucks. A scan of my photos shows I take few pictures of them. Welcome to the start of an occasional series.
These ore dump trucks were being transported westward on the Kalgoorlie Laverton Road. First comes the transport escort with a big sign and amber flashing lights. With the trucks still out of sight you call on the UHF radio and ask the size.
SEVEN metres wide.
You start slowing down and the next escort vehicle is the police escort four wheel drive. Despite them hearing your conversation on the radio and you slowing down and slowly moving off the road they drive directly at you headlights and red and blues flashing.
And then the trucks arrive. (click on the images for a much larger view)
Have a Pleasant Sunday Afternoon
