Massive wind turbines to crowd Queensway for weeks


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

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

The turbines caused some commuters to grumble and snap photos as the enormous blades travelled through Ottawa last Friday.  

It’s expected the blades will be assembled and done travelling by November, but that timeframe is dependent on weather and the job site, the ministry said. 

The wind turbines are heading to a wind farm in Saint-Sylvester, Que.
