A remarkable video shows how you solve a seemingly impossible problem – turning sharp right on a narrow Highland road carrying a 200-foot turbine blade. The incredible feat of skill is pulled off thanks to patience, very careful measurement, and rear wheels that are steered electronically from the cab.
At the start of the clip, filmed on Saturday, the lorry is seen approaching the narrow entrance of the bridge and holding to the far left-hand-side of the road.
The HGV driver then swings the cab around the impossibly sharp bend, even managing to stay in the correct lane.
Travelling at a crawling pace, other workman can be seen directing the driver and checking to make sure the trailer is able to clear the rails at the side of the bridge. Another workman is seen at the rear of the trailer on a radio helping the driver steer the trailer and gently navigate it around the bend.
Two police vehicles can be seen in the clip with one leading the HGV and another behind – stopping traffic and allowing the turbine blade through.
