Wind farm substation work starts at Bicker Fen
Work at Bicker Fen substation, as part of the Triton Knoll offshore wind farm, started on Monday.
The work is an important part of Innogy Renewables' plans to connect new low-carbon energy supplies from Triton Knoll to the National Grid network. It is expected to be complete in February, 2020.
A strict traffic management plan is in place which clearly identifies the roads that project traffic can use. It includes a construction traffic marshalling system and imposes lower than legal speed limits for construction traffic. This means all construction traffic will bypass Bicker village.
A zero-tolerance approach is to be taken to contractors or staff who don't follow the traffic management plan.
Heavy goods vehicles to and from the substation site will clearly display a National Grid sign in the windscreen.
Residents are encouraged to call the community relations line with details of any vehicles suspected of breaking the traffic management plan.
