Drivers should expect delays on some of Norfolk's major routes on Wednesday due to an extremely heavy abnormal load travelling through the county.
From around 10am on July 14, police will escort a load carrying 44 tons of deck moulding through the county towards its final destination in the Norfolk Broads.
The load is five metres wide, 4.6m high and 23m long, and is being escorted from Poole in Dorset to Tunstead Road in Hoveton.
It will enter Norfolk via the A11 and travel up to Thickthorn, where it will head west along the A47 to Longwater.
After turning onto Dereham Road, it will move to the our Norwich ring road before turning left onto the A140 Cromer Road.
The load will then be directed on to the NDR towards the A47, where it will rejoin at Postwick before heading east to the A1064.
From there, it will move onto the A149 to access the local roads to its final destination.
