Access is one of the key considerations when selecting a potential wind farm site. We will consult with the Roads Department, the emergancy services, the local community and other relevant bodies on our transport plans to ensure that we consider any concerns people may have. A transport assessment will be undertaken as part of the Environmental Impact Assessment proocess.
The proposed access route would be along the A465 to Hirwaun and then south on the A4061 to the recently constructed Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm. The access route would then follow tracks through that Wind Farm before travelling along a short stretch of the A4107 to the Upper Ogmore site.
Should the planning application for Upper Ogmore Wind Farm be approved, a detailed traffic management plan will be agreed with the relevant authorities. Among other aspects this will include delivery routes and times in order to minimise any potential disruption to local residents. Wherever reasonably practible we will use materials availible on site and source construction materials locally in order to help reduce traffic movements.
