By this stage everyone knows that the unit will go through the doors.

The first new unit takes to the road on a Monday morning. The load is 12 fett wide and the law required that the haulier provide ab escort.

The load fills Ringwood Road as it passes The Chase. The standard width for the Instacom building was 10 feet which came within normal load restrictions.
