A giant convoy passed through Wisbech on its way to the Walpole sub station which is believed to be the last for some time.
Police were on hand as the heavy load arrived at Freedom Bridge in the morning and caused disruption to motorists as it passed over the bridge on the wrong side.
It then travelled anti clockwise on the roundabout before uncoupling and swapping round the shunt trucks before travelling clockwise around the roundabout.
The truck was more than 90m in length and weighed around 466 tonnes and was transporting a 195 tonne autotransformer to Walpole Sub Station.
