Warning as wind turbines to be carried from England through Wales every weekday for four weeks
A company building a wind farm has told drivers to expect disruption as they ferry a convoy of wind turbine parts from England through Wales every weekday for four weeks.
The daily 10mph journeys will start at Ellesmere Port at 9am and finish 90 miles away at Hendy Wind Farm, near Llandrindod Wells, at 4.30pm. The huge pats will be carried on a lorry and will be provided with a police escort.
Njord Energy said the wind farm will provide enough power annually to fuel 9,800 homes. They thanked the public for their cooperation as the wind farm is built.
A spokesman for Njord Energy said: “Abnormal loads transporting sections of the wind turbines will be operating on the A483, A489 and A470 between Llanymynech and Doldowlod, on the A4081 between Doldowlod and Llandrindod Wells and on the A483 and A44 between Llandrindod Wells and Llandegley between Tuesday 31st August and 1st October 2021.
“During this period, lorries will be transporting wind turbine loads on weekdays under Police escort. Careful traffic management measures have been developed in association with the Welsh Government, NMWTRA, the Police and the turbine hauliers to ensure that any disruption is kept to a minimum along the route.
“In anticipation of this work, Hendy Wind Farm Limited would like to thank people in Powys in advance for their co-operation.
“For further information, members of the public can call: 07917 698 966”
