Delays expected on Kent roads as propeller blades for wind turbines are moved
Motorists in Kent have been warned to expect delays and disruption to their journeys because propeller blades for wind turbines are being moved today. The “abnormally long loads” will be travelling between Chatham Dockyard and to Romney Marsh.
It’s said that the 78 vehicles carrying the blades will be moving through the county, escorted by police motorbikes starting with three loads leaving the dockyard at 10.30am. The convoy will then travel along the A289 Medway tunnel road and join the M2 before continuing down Bluebell Hill to join the M20. Exiting the motorway at junction 10, the vehicles will then travel along the A2070, A259 and arrive at the site.
From tomorrow two lots of up to three loads a day will be moved for 13 days, except on weekends this will go on until all the blades have been transported.
Do you think that Wind Farms are a good idea?
