The abnormal load, an articulated lorry carrying a tank weighing 98 tonnes, travelled from the centre along the A350, before heading along the A36 eastbound around Warminster to the A303.
The load was travelling towards Deptford and was escorted by Wiltshire Police, with Dorset Police taking over when it crossed the border.
