Welshpool warning over windfarm lorry trips’ impact  

Credit:  www.shropshirestar.com 31 October 2011 ~~

More than 630,000 extra lorries could travel through Mid Wales over a four-year period if proposed windfarms get the go-ahead, it has emerged. Welshpool Town Council fears it will have a ‘severe impact’.

It says thousands of lorries carrying turbines to proposed windfarms could have a ‘severe impact’ on the town.

Fears have been raised that windfarm developers will have to carry turbine parts, including blades of up to 45 metres long, through the town to reach various proposed windfarm sites.

Robert Robinson, town clerk, said plans for hundreds of wind turbines, an electricity substation and dozens of pylons in Mid Wales would ‘totally destroy’ the area.
