Convoys: We’re back on for Monday!

Windfarm developers have now decided that Monday will actually be the day that they will be launching their enormous convoys through the area after all.

After originally announcing yesterday that the huge components would start their daily runs towards the Tirgwynt wind farm near Cefn Coch on Monday, they then said this morning that it would probably be later in the week.

But just hours later they have changed their mind again and decided that the turbine deliveries will start on Monday.

Deliveries will have a full police escort with one delivery per day up to six days a week, which would take approximately two months, until mid-September.

Dates of key local events and the August bank holiday weekend will be avoided.

Pete Thomas, Construction Manager, Awel Newydd Cyf, said: “Months of preparations have gone into this, working with our experienced hauliers and the local police, and we feel confident that the deliveries will run smoothly and cause minimal disruption to the public.

“We are very grateful to the local community for their patience and support during this next phase of construction of the wind farm. The best source of information about the planned schedules for deliveries is our website,”

Convoys consisting of two Abnormal Load vehicles with a full police escort will start from Goole in Yorkshire, travelling along major trunk roads. They will enter mid-Wales at Pant, travelling south along the A483 to Welshpool, then following the A458 and B4385 to the site entrance just beyond Cefn Coch.
