Abnormal load on roads for final delivery to Cumbria wind farm
Last updated at 10:30, Friday, 01 February 2013
POLICE have warned motorists they will be escorting an large load along Cumbrian roads today.
This is the final abnormal load movement into the Armisteads Wind Farm at Old Hutton, near Kendal.
A nacelle will set off around 12 noon today from Burton Services escorted by officers from Cumbria Constabulary Roads Policing Unit, and will travel along the M6 northbound to junction 36, where it will then make its way up the A65 to Oxenholme.
At Oxenholme, the load will turn right into Helmside Road, then right into the B6254, continuing its journey up through the villages of Middleshaw and Old Hutton, before arriving on site at the Armisteads Wind Farm around 12.45pm.
The load is one of the smaller in the series and is unlikely to cause any significant delays.
This concludes the movement of the abnormal loads for the Armisteads Wind Farm and Cumbria Constabulary Roads Policing Unit would like to thank local residents and motorists for their continued co-operation and patience during this operation.
