Travel Disruption – Wind Turbine Parts

September 2018


I have recently been advised of the deliveries of turbine components to Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm. These are expected to commence next week and I would wish to share this information with all interested parties. Key information is detailed below:

Component deliveries to Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm will be made under South Wales Police escort typically between 9.30am and 3.30pm, Monday – Saturday and for up to 16 weeks.

It is expected that up to two convoys will be made each day, made up of three components in the morning and two components in the afternoon. It is anticipated that the first convoy will depart each morning at approximately 9.30am with the second convoy departing the Port of Swansea between 12.00pm – 13.30pm. The delivery of components will be subject to the availability of South Wales Police escorts and prevailing traffic conditions.

Deliveries will travel from the Port of Swansea and along Fabian Way before joining the M4. The load will exit the M4 at Junction 47, heading towards Penllergaer and then travel to the site entrance located off Bolgoed Road. It is anticipated to take approximately 45 minutes to travel from the Port of Swansea to the site entrance.

Innogy Renewables UK Limited has set up a text service to keep people up to date on the deliveries. This is a free service. To register, please send your mobile number requesting text alerts for Mynydd y Gwair Wind Farm to or text “MyGWF” to 88882.
