Wind Farm Traffic Success?

DSCF1404Andrew will be meeting once again with the developers of the Keadby Wind farm, RES Ltd, next week for a further update on the proposal to open up an access route to the site off the A18.


Andrew and local Conservative Councillors John Briggs, Caroline Fox and Gordon Megson, have been working hard to ensure that the alternative route is opened up so as to save Old Goole, Swinefleet, Ealand and Eastoft from thousands of construction vehicles.


Andrew Percy says, "I wrote to residents at the beginning of February to let them know that Network Rail had contacted me to confirm that they were now formally considering the proposal by RES Ltd to construct a bridge over their railway line which would open up the alternative route off the A18.


"I also reported that RES had confirmed to me that, subject to the negotiations with Network Rail, ‘RES are confident that either all, or almost all, construction traffic would avoid Keadby and Ealand, while no construction traffic would go through Eastoft, Swinefleet or Old Goole’.


"I am therefore hopeful that I will have more good news for residents shortly and I look forward to meeting with RES next week."
