Road Train Route into Adelaide
I took this photo on the A1 highway on the outskirts of the city of Adelaide in the state of South Australia.
The sign show the Road Train drivers the roads to use for their weight and length heading into the city of Adelaide. Road Train routes are roads that can handle a tractor with multiple trailers, a two trailer Road Train is about 35 metres long a haul around 80 tonnes. You can only haul two trailers into the big city the rest of the trailers have to be dropped off before at a Road Train park. The typical Road Train are the longest trucks in the world. They have 3 or more trailers and are 53 metres long, ( 174 feet ) hauling 115 metric tons (253,531 pounds).
