Mynydd y Gwair WInd Farm
Thursday 9th of February 2017 11:54
Innogy PLC have commenced work on the construction of the wind farm on Mynydd y Gwair. Work commenced on 6 February 2017.
It is likely that construction work will continue for approximately 18 months. In the period between February 2017 and December 2017 all traffic going to and coming from the site will be travelling along the A48 though Pontlliw to the start of the access road on Bolgoed Road Pontarddulais.
There will be upto 60 lorry movements per day with the peak number of movements being when the base for the wind turbines is made. The date when this will take place is not yet known.
The wind tubines are likely to be delivered to site in or around April/May 2018. The delivery of the turbines will take place during the school day to avoid peak times.
The road closure programme will commence on 8 May 2017. Details of the roads affected are shown on the attached plans.
Heol Glyn Dyfal road will be fully closed from Monday 26th June 2017 for three weeks. During this period it will not be possible to pass through the road works outside of hours due to the nature of the works and the risks that it would pose to road users.
Innogy will be erecting ‘Black on Yellow’ signs to inform those currently using the road outside of the closure that access will not be permitted during this period and they will also ask Dawnus to hand out leaflets detailing the closures over the course of the week commencing 19 June 2017.
