RES has been appointed to manage the construction and operation of the wind farm on behalf of ERG SpA who own the project. The civil construction works, lasting through to Spring 2025, will be undertaken by Adman Civil Projects Ltd and the turbines will be supplied and installed by Vestas-Celtic Wind Technology Ltd. A period of commissioning, testing, and reinstatement work will then follow before the wind farm is expected to reach full operation in Q1 2026.

Updated April 2024:

In preparation for turbine component deliveries (scheduled for spring 2025) we will be undertaking some widening works along the Corlacky Road (from its junction with Halfgayne Road to its junction with Corlacky Hill Road). There will be further works to Halfgayne Road in Q1 2025.

These initial enabling works are expected to be complete by the end of May 2024. To ensure the safety of the community, our contractors and staff while these works take place, traffic management measures (as agreed with Department for Instructure) will be put in place. Local access will be maintained at all times.

Standard construction working hours as permitted by the relevant authority are:
• Monday - Friday, 7am-6pm
• Saturday, 9am-1pm

Every effort will be made to avoid peak traffic movements at the beginning and end of the working day. Where work is required to take place on Sundays and Bank Holidays, this will be agreed with the relevant authorities in advance. We are also in liaison with local schools to discuss how best to accommodate the school bus routes during this period of work and minimise disruption.

We have written to local residents and businesses in close proximity to provide advance notice of these works and will continue to do so at key intervals to communicate any potential impacts from the construction activity.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused and encourage you to contact us, should you have any questions.


Access to the wind farm would be by a newly created site entrance on the Corlacky Road.

It is proposed that the wind turbine components would travel along the A6, through Maghera via Knockloughrim.  From Maghera, the route follows the Tirkane Road before turning right onto the Halfgayne Road and then left onto the Corlacky Road.  The site entrance would be located approximately 1.6 km along the Corlacky Road on the left hand side.

Other construction traffic would access the Corlacky Road site entrance via a number of routes.  Temporary passing bays would be created along the Corlacky Road, between the site entrance and the junction with the Halfgayne Road to ease traffic movements.

A detailed Traffic Management Plan has been agreed with Transport NI ahead of construction, and the local community will be consulted to ensure that local issues are taken into account. 

The Traffic and Transport Impact Assessment is available to view within the Environmental Statement, submitted in 2016.
