There was traffic chaos on Crossgates roundabout on the A483, near Llandrindod Wells, on Saturday afternoon (January 20) as a convoy of lorries, together with a strong police escort, inched their way up the main road before turning towards Penybont.

Traffic signals on the road had to be removed as the vehicles went over the island and very slowly negotiated their way through the railway bridges and on to the Hendy Wind Farm, near Llandegley.

One observer of the convoy said it was "absolute chaos" and added: "In all it was hats off to the drivers for their skill and efforts."

Meanwhile, protesters reported on Tuesday that all the components to construct the first turbine at Hendy Wind Farm had arrived on site and were being assembled.

Campaigner, Kristine Moore said: "So sadly, we cannot now prevent Hendy Wind Farm meeting the subsidy deadline. But the fight is not over.

"There are still a number of avenues we are following to prevent the completion of the remaining turbines including the Section 288 legal action by CPRW (Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales), so the fight is far from over."

Protesters against the Hendy Wind Farm were due to join a demonstration at County Hall in Llandrindod Wells on Thursday (January 24), at 9am, ahead of a full meeting of Powys County Council.
