AN abnormal load bound for the BMW plant is set to cause delays on Swindon’s roads for the third time in a week.

Police will escort the convoy, which will consist of two huge panel presses. It will join the M4 at junction 18 at around 10.30am on Tuesday, July 14 before leaving at junction 15 and travelling northbound along the A419 to the Rat Trap roundabout.

From there, it will travel along Highworth Road and Hobley Drive before reaching the plant at Swindon Road.

The loads will both be 4.90 metres wide and weigh 80 and 110 tonnes respectively.

Drivers coming in the opposite direction will have to pull their vehicles in and wait for the convoy to pass.
