Vat Picture-139-e1294765204621

The beer vats are huge — 45 metres long, eight metres high and more than seven metres wide — and so is the effort to get them from Point A to Point B. – CTV news

Challenger Motor Freight Inc. has worked with 70 different organizations in planning the route to avoid overpasses, co-ordinate with several police forces to close intersections, raise or cut hydro and cable wires to get the vats through, steer trucks by remote control through tight areas and remove metal poles then weld them back in place. – CTV News

Total cost to move them: $24 million

One guy’s sole job is to tweet.
