Wind turbine update
Anyone who has visited in the last week will have noticed the Forest Centre’s overflow car park has been taken over by cabins and big machines. Yes, it’s finally happening! After a bit of a wait and a false start, operation wind turbine has begun.
The first stage involves upgrading the existing track all the way from the overflow car park to the wind turbine location. This is to ensure it is wide and strong enough to take not only the construction traffic but the exciting final delivery of the turbine itself. Widening of the existing track will continue until early November when the contractors will turn up the hill and construct a new track to the turbine location.
Inevitably there will be some disruption to access from the Forest Centre out onto the Park. Luckily, our visitors will still be able to get to the vast majority of the Park at all times; it may just involve a slight detour from the usual routes. Maps have been placed out on site and in reception, these clearly indicate which paths are closed and which are still accessible.
