Here we go again…

A new operation to deliver enormous components to a new wind farm under construction in Radnorshire gets underway today (Monday), just two days after the last one finished.

Huge loads will start to trundle again through the Welshpool area, but this time they will follow the bypass up to Newtown to the Garreg Lwyd Hill site just across the Radnorshire border.

Developers RES have confirmed the loads, originating from Liverpool Dock could continue through to Christmas.

“We are expected to start on September 19 to allow Tirgwynt Wind Farm (with whom we share part of the delivery route) to complete their deliveries by Saturday, September 17,” RES said on their web site. “This will minimise disruption by avoiding any overlap. It is not envisaged that the rescheduled start date will impact the delivery programme which is still scheduled to be completed by mid-December 2016.

“There will be one convoy per day (transporting up to three components) from Monday-Friday unless otherwise agreed with the relevant authorities and police escort team.

“Each convoy will begin its journey at Liverpool Dock and continue along the motorway network to Chester and then the A55, A5, A489 and A483 trunk roads to the wind farm site where they are expected to arrive early to mid-afternoon. The empty vehicles will not need to be escorted on their return journey.”

The deliveries to Tirgwynt Wind Farm over the summer caused some traffic disruption but travelled through our area largely trouble free, despite some complaints of returning lorries clogging up Llanfair Caereinion whilst the drivers went for chips.
