Two abnormal loads on the M5 and A30 next week

From Devon & Cornwall Police:

 

Drivers using the M5 and A30 Westbound are being warned about two large convoys which will be escorted by police next week.

On Tuesday 16 June and Wednesday 17 police will be escorting vehicles transporting wind farm parts to Ventonteague, TR4 9HZ – approximately one mile west of the A30 at Carland Cross.

Police will be providing a full escort to the convoys and drivers can expect some disruption and possible delays during this time.

Full details of the journeys and timings as below:

Tuesday 16 June 2020

Three loads in convoy will be departing the M5 J30 at around 10am and expected to arrive at Ventonteague by 2pm.

They will travel down the M5 to J31 where they will join the A30 and travel Chiverton Cross. They will then turn back towards Carland Cross where they will enter the site.

The loads are five meters wide so caution should be taken when passing and there may be slight delays between the A30 at Carland Cross and A30 at Chiverton Cross in both directions as the vehicles enter the site.

Wednesday 17 June 2020

Three loads in convoy will be departing the M5 J30 at around 10am and expected to arrive at Ventonteague by 3pm.

They will travel down the M5 to J31 where they will join the A30 and travel Chiverton Cross. They will then turn back towards Carland Cross where they will enter the site.

They will be carrying 3 x 46m long wind turbine blades in convoy and the convoy is expected to be around 200 metres long. It is not a wide load so passing on dual carriageways will be permitted, but there may be slight delays between the A30 at Carland Cross and A30 at Chiverton Cross in both directions as the vehicles enter the site.
