Massive Wind Turbines to Crowd Queensway for Weeks

25 Sep 2017

Enormous wind blades will be taking up space on the Queensway for weeks as they make their way to Quebec, according to the Ministry of Transportation.

The turbines, which come from a manufacturing plant in Tillsonburg, Ont., have been in transit since Aug. 22.

They're heading to a wind farm in Saint-Sylvestre, Que., and caused some commuters to grumble and snap photos as enormous blades were transported through Ottawa.

It's expected the blades will be moved by November, but it depends on weather and other factors, the ministry said.
