The ITER Itinerary test convoy successfully completed its four-night journey test and measurement campaign last week, arriving at the ITER construction site early in the morning on Friday 20 September.

All along the 104 kilometres of the Itinerary, local inhabitants came out to see the first of the spectacular ITER loads as it negotiated bridges, intersections and narrow village centres—some 2,000 people in all.

The most difficult passage, technically, was on the fourth night, when the convoy had to make a steep climb to bypass the A51 motorway tunnel. This four-minute video will take you to the early hours of the morning, as teams from logistics service provider DAHER, Agence Iter France, and the French authorities work to bring the transport convoy to ITER safely.

(Some sequences have been accelerated.)
