Delays will be experienced on a handful of major roads between Port Kembla and Yallah tonight with an oversized vehicle to be police escorted to the Tallawarra Power Station.

Transport for NSW said the operation will begin at 11pm and affect southbound traffic with the travel route including Springhill Road, Five Islands Road and the M1.

"Motorists are advised to delay their journeys if possible or use alternative southbound routes as the operation will be slow moving.

"Motorists will not be able to pass escort vehicles and are requested to follow the directions of traffic controllers," Transport for NSW said.
