Turbine Transport Set For Sunday

They will try again this weekend to get the other mammoth turbine from the Port down to Point Lepreau.

You are advised to avoid Route 1 between 7am and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

You can expect major delays in the eastbound and westbound lanes of Route 1 from Ludlow Street in Saint John West to Route 790 at Lepreau as the turbine is transported to Point Lepreau.

It was originally planned for last Sunday but delayed because of the weather.

The convoy will be moving very slowly at between 15-20 kilometers per hour for most of the 50-kilometre journey with a police escort.

It should take about six hours to complete the transport.
