Update on local traffic impacts

Goldwind has appointed Launceston based company, Gradco, to undertake road upgrades to existing roads within the Central Highlands region of Tasmania to allow for the delivery of wind turbine components and associated equipment to the Cattle Hill Wind Farm site.

The road works have been preceded by road surveys and dilapidation reports undertaken by Tasmanian based consultants, and agreements with relevant road authorities and landowners.

Upgrades to the existing roads will include works such as realignments, shoulder widening, embankment adjustments, causeway and bridge upgrades and installation of safety furniture.

The works are now underway and will continue into the new year. There will be a noticeable increase in construction traffic and interruptions to traffic in the local area while the works are underway, so we ask road users to please take care and observe traffic control. We aim to keep local disruption to a minimum and will be providing updates on the works on our project website and in local publications. If local community members have questions they are welcome to drop into the project information centre now open in Bothwell.
