Dogger Bank Wind Farm

Temporary traffic management on Park Lane near Cottingham

Traffic marshals will be in place on a section of Park Lane near Cottingham from this month, as work continues to progress the onshore construction phase for the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

Construction vehicles will be accessing a small section of Park Lane from 11 May, with traffic management in place for an initial period of three weeks.

The vehicles will be travelling through the existing Convertor Station site located off the A1079 to access Park Lane.

In order to manage this safely and to minimise disruption for anyone using Park Lane, traffic marshals will be in place from 7am to 7pm from Monday to Friday, and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays.

“While the number of vehicles using this section of road is minimal, we know it’s a popular route with cyclists and pedestrians, so we want to ensure the safety of these road users is paramount while this work is taking place,” explained Dogger Bank Wind Farm Community Engagement Manager, Rachel Lawrence.

“We’ll be carrying out essential work on the part of the wind farm where the electricity is transmitted via buried cables from the onshore convertor station, to the National Grid Substation.

“The safest way to carry out this work, while minimising disruption to the local community, is to provide on-site traffic management, with marshals coordinating construction traffic along Park Lane.

“While most road users will be able to use the road as normal during this period, the marshals will be on-hand to ensure the road is clear and advise members of the public as necessary.”

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being developed in three 1.2GW phases: Dogger Bank A, B and C. Dogger Bank A and B will connect to the National Grid at the Creyke Beck substation, between Beverley and Cottingham, while Dogger Bank C will connect to the National Grid on Teesside, at the Lackenby Sub Station.

Dogger Bank A and B is a joint venture between SSE Renewables (40 per cent), Equinor (40 per cent) and Eni (20 per cent), while Dogger Bank C is a 50:50 joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor.

The work on Park Lane is being carried out by specialists, Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK.

The UK-based firm is currently working in East Riding of Yorkshire on the grid connection and land-based infrastructure for the first two phases of the development, which is to be built more than 130km off the Yorkshire coast in the North Sea.
