Are Niagara Wind’s guardrails being installed for safety of people or just for the protection of wind facility infrastructure?
The intrusive and extensive kilometers of guardrails for Niagara Wind now found along West Lincoln’s and Regional roads were a subject of discussion on September 19, 2016. Blocked access to heritage cemeteries, narrowed driveway entrances, visual clutter for home frontages, maintenance issues, and snow removal were among the issues discussed. The random pattern of installations are generating a lot of blow back from the residents who have been calling into West Lincoln County for answers. (Start at the 13 minute mark of the video).
Have Questions about Niagara Wind’s Guardrails?
Contact West Lincoln public works with inquiries and anticipate the opportunity to be “educated” – Expected timeline for a response to be within 24 hours.
Council members (20 minute mark of video) discuss the realities for large modern day farm equipment travelling the roads and increased barriers faced by guardrails narrowing the road width. The suggestion is brought forth that perhaps the Engineers signing off on the plans attend Council and they be reminded to take into account the traffic found in an active agricultural community.
Niagara Wind is certainly a moving target.
