Wind turbine blades en route from Taranaki to Tilt Renewables' Waipipi Wind Farm from Tuesday 2 June (updated)

|

Early risers may catch a glimpse of giant wind turbine blades en route from Port Taranaki to the Waipipi Wind Farm in Waverley from Tuesday 2 June.


Update 2 June 2020 10.00am

Wind turbine blades destined for Mercury's new wind farm under construction in Turitea, Manawatū are now postponed until further notice.


Update 27 May 2020 7.45pm

The transport of the giant wind turbine blades from Port Taranaki to the Waipipi Wind Farm in Waverley is no longer happening tomorrow morning and instead will commence on Tuesday 2 June.


Two 64m-long blades will be transported by truck, leaving the port at 3am on Thursday and arriving at Waipipi Wind Farm at approximately 8am.

Daily transports will recommence from Tuesday after the long weekend and continue until early October.

Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency System Manager Ross I’Anson says the blades will be moved via Breakwater Road, Pioneer Road and South Road in New Plymouth, then along State Highway 45 and State Highway 3, and finally Rangikura Road in Waverley.

“Motorists may experience some delays at Manaia as the trucks carrying the oversized cargo negotiate the roundabout in the centre of town at approximately 6am.

“Please take extra care and, where possible, avoid the area during this time," says Mr I’Anson.

The cargo is being transported by Heavy Haulage company PTS Logistics.

Plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable journey. Keep up to date with:
