It is now almost twenty years since STG were first approached to study the movement of glass capsules from south east France to central London. Three features always come to mind. Firstly, there were thirty two capsules, if one were to be damaged, the wheel would be out of balance. Secondly, the authorities had determined that the final stage of the delivery had to be via the Thames, road movement was not allowed. Thirdly, timing was critical, as part of the Millennium Celebrations, it was imperative that the wheel was operational, at midnight on 31st December 1999.
Despite being in the public eye throughout the project, appearing many times on television, The Specialist Transport Group rose to the occasion – delivering each precious capsule safely, on time and to budget.
