The gigantic load that journeyed north from Edmonton may have made history, but it didn’t do it very quickly.

All told, it took the 820-tonne, 96-metre long payload three days to reach its final destination outside of Fort Saskatchewan, travelling roughly 40 km from the yard at Dacro Industries.

While that may have been a complete pain in the car seat for anyone stuck behind the historically large load, watching the petrochemical splitter move via timelapse is much more satisfying.

Thankfully, our very own premier Rachel Notley has posted a few videos of the hunk of steel in action, being transported under the power of multiple semi trucks.

The splitter has now made it to its journey’s end at a site north of Fort Saskatchewan, and we think we speak for all Albertans by saying that we’re glad that thing didn’t roll off the side of the road on its way there.
