Transportation of Wind Turbines in Wales Being Tested

Transportation of Wind Turbines in Wales Being Tested

Wind controversy over in Wales: plans to transport wind turbine blades and towers along mid Wales’ country roads are being tested and people are up in arms over it. BBC news is reporting that a truck towing an extended trailer with a police escort carried out the first trial run on Tuesday, with a second planned for Wednesday.

Although delays to motorists were minimal, residents still remember last year when a report warned that “significant disruption” could be caused by taking turbines by road.

However, Tuesday’s trial to a remote area three miles south of the village of Dolfor, near Newtown, passed without incident. A further test run to mid Wales is planned next month from Ellesmere Port docks in north west England, when a truck and its police escort will navigate roads down from north Wales.
