The wind turbines are coming

Created on 27/06/2013 @ 07:22


Local roads will grind to a standstill next month to allow abnormal loads to reach a previously approved windfarm being built in Ceredigion.

The Welsh Office has published notices proposing temporary road traffic orders for the A483 from Llanymynech to Newtown and the A489 to Caersws.

Campaigners who fiercely oppose the development of wind energy in Montgomeryshire say it is a sign of things to come with a further five larger windfarms currently under scrutiny at a public enquiry.

The proposed order would close the section of road to all vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists while loads are being transported to a site close to the West Wales coast.

It is proposed to build larger windfarms in Llanbadarn Fynydd, near Llandrindod Wells; Llaithddu, near Newtown; Llandinam, near Llanidloes; Llanbrynmair, near Machynlleth and Carnedd Wen, near Machynlleth.

The public inquiry looking at all five applications is expected to conclude next spring.

Councillors at Pant and Llanymynech Parish Council will discuss the issue at a meeting tonight (Thursday).
