A GIGANTIC electricity transformer will make its way through Times Territory tonight (Friday) as it begins a three-day journey to London.
The transformer, which reduces high-voltage electricity from power stations into a lower voltage for homes and offices, is being moved from Sundon substation, near Luton, to Beddington substation in Croydon..
The "abnormal" load weighs over 25,000 kilos and is more than 65 metres (215ft) in length.
Because of its size, the journey will be carried out overnight and in three parts, to minimise the impact on motorists. It will leave Sundon Substation tonight at around 8pm.
