The project manager of Bradwell wind farm has apologised, after a lorry carrying part of a wind turbine broke down yesterday and caused huge traffic disruptions.

Police urged motorists to avoid the Fambridge Road area until 5.30pm, when the load was recovered.

Motorists were diverted to Purleigh and Mundon to avoid the lorry, which broke down outside the Round Bush pub.

The lorry’s load was destined for the wind farm at Bradwell, which is currently undergoing construction.

Michael Williams, Project Manager for Bradwell Wind Farm said: “The first turbine deliveries to site commenced on Tuesday 5th March.

“One lorry suffered a mechanical problem and the convoy was delayed.

“Our thanks go to the police who quickly and safely diverted traffic but we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the delay caused to road users.

“We are keeping local residents and interested parties up to date by email and text alerts. To sign up, please email bradwell@rwe.com.”

More deliveries are expected to run as normal, today, Friday and Monday between 10am and 3pm.
