Arrival of wind turbine parts causes concern 

Credit:  Donegal Now | Tuesday 19th of April 2016 | www.donegalnow.com ~~

Residents along the road between Greencastle and Culdaff were greeted by the arrival of a convoy of cement trucks at 7.45am yesterday morning.

The trucks were transporting cement for the construction of the controversial wind turbines which are to be erected on Crockbrack Hill, above Kinnagoe Bay.

According to the Inishowen Wind Energy Awareness Group (IWEAG) a low-loader arrived this morning transporting parts for the turbines. Due to the size of the truck and equipment, bollards were being taken down in Moville. However, when concerned residents informed local councillors of this operation, it transpired that the company did not have permission to do this.

A spokesperson for the IWEAG revealed that councillors in the area were unaware this operation would be taking place today, and the bollards have had to be replaced.

The IWEAG added that the wind turbine company have “broken so many conditions at this point with regards to access to the site, that Donegal County Council have issued a warning letter.” Residents are concerned now with the level of disruption to the area, particularly considering the amount of equipment yet to arrived. The IWEAG are expecting something in the region of 12 to 15 low-loaders over the course of the construction.

Last month, the road between Greencastle and Culdaff was blocked by two such low-loaders transporting similar equipment.
