We have had some delays which has meant the program has started later than expected, but we still anticipate finishing at the time originally planned in December 22.
During the construction period there will be a varying amount of traffic movements. Our plans for abnormal loads and managing the increased volume of visits during the construction have been shared with the local authorities to produce the Traffic Management Plan.
Our updated program anticipates that the average daily movements to be in line with the original estimates, and that its peak should sit between 80-120 on average.
Route takes Kings Inch Drive, M8, M74 and finally the B743 from where the vehicles will access the windfarm.
During the construction process, and for the safety of the local community, one of the core paths in the area will be closed. We will place communication for the local community at the entrance to the path, notify local community councils, the local newspaper, and local websites relevant to the monument and footpaths. We will also permanently upgrade a section of the path which will form part of the access tracks for the site which the public will be free to use once the construction has ended.
Alternative routes to the monument will be shown at the site.
The community manager for this project will be Robin Winstanley.
