I know a project manager tasked with moving one of the retired concordes from Heathrow to somewhere along the Thames for transport up to a museum in Scotland. This required removal of several traffic islands and signals temporarily (overnight), and was quite the logistical challenge, made for some cool pictures though!

If you like such pictures, check out the pictures from moving "Bagger 288" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagger_288) over a mere 22 km in 2001 (https://www.google.nl/search?q=bagger+288+2001)

I remember seeing a nice writeup of what that move involved, but cannot find it anymore.
