Update on transformer delivery work (1-5 July 2019)

IFA2 will be making deliveries from the Hovercraft Slipway to a construction site off Broom Way in the coming weeks, starting 1 July 2019.

We currently expect to make deliveries at the following dates and times:

  • 1 July 2019: Preparation of Hovercraft Slipway and beach for landing
  • 2 July 2019: Delivery of two transformers to Hovercraft Slipway by barge
  • 3 July 2019: First transformer delivered to converter station site with police escort between 0930 and 1030
  • 5 July 2019: Second transformer delivered to converter station site with police escort between 0930 and 1030

The Hovercraft Slipway car park will be completely closed to the public for safety reasons on 2 July. It will be partially closed on 1, 3, 4 and 5 July. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

We are planning a further set of transformer deliveries in the week commencing 15 July 2019. We will update this site with details of the second set of deliveries when they are confirmed. 

The deliveries will be made using a large self-propelled vehicle. It will travel at 5mph.

Traffic will be managed by the police during the delivery and this will include a rolling road block for oncoming vehicles.

This could cause traffic to queue behind it whilst it is moving along the route.
