The 59,000kg boat will leave Cambridgeshire at 9am and take the A1303 towards Newmarket. It will travel via Swaffham Bulbeck, Burwell, Exning, Windmill Hill, Newmarket and Kentford.

It will join the A14 near Bury St Edmunds, take the A1308 through Stowmarket and continue on the B1113 through Needham Market to Great Blakenham.

It will go through Bramford and Sproughton villages, take the A1071 to the A1214 and then turn left into Ipswich.

It will then turn right on the A137 West End Road and follow the one-way system to Bridge Street, to enter Haven Marina before Stoke Bridge.
