TURBINES associated with Den Brook Wind Farm will begin to arrive on site in sections from Avonmouth Port, starting this month until early August 2016.
The final part of the journey to site will see them leave the A30 to join the A382 at Whiddon Down. The convoy will join the A3124, using the new link road at Whiddon Down, and then at De Bathe Cross turn right on to the A3072 which is followed to the site entrance. As the deliveries require large vehicles, each convoy will have a dedicated escort to ensure safety for all road users.
Following feedback from the local community, RES (Renewable Energy Systems) has worked with turbine supplier Vestas to time the majority of the deliveries to avoid the early morning rush hour. The aim is for the main daily convoy to be on site by 6.30am. A small number of deliveries (normally up to two per turbine during the erection phase only) are delivered just in time for erection and will come to site during the working day.
Residents are asked to keep the public highway clear of parked cars during this period if possible.
