Four 140 feet Long Oxygen Tanks Travelling at 5mph Through Midlands
« on: Wednesday 17 June 20 14:28 BST (UK) »
The lorries are moving four 140 feet long Oxygen tanks for the Midlands.

Tree branches are being lopped, overhead telephone lines & cables are being moved to allow one of the first of four 164 feet long trucks to travel.

Some temporary road closures and delays

HSJ say that one German company was filling 40,000 Oxygen cylinders a day at sites across the UK.

Let's hope they don't bump into 280 feet long Hydrogen tankers otherwise it will all end in tears.

Thanks, some aerial pictures were on TV, the tanks were empty for transporting.

A Health Service Journal, claims Warwickshire Health Bosses want a local plentiful supply of oxygen.
