Tramway sends Warning to Motorists at Level Crossings

Seaton Tramway urges motorists to use extreme caution when approaching red lights at the level crossing.

CCTV has now been installed on the A3052 level crossing at Colyford following the serious incident in April this year which monitors the level crossing at all times.

“The message must be clear to all road users that not stopping at a level crossing when red lights and audible alarms are sounding is not only a dangerous thing to do, but also an offence for which the individual can ultimately be prosecuted” Jenny Nunn, CEO of Seaton Tramway reiterated.

Devon and Cornwall Police are working closely with the Tramway and have confirmed that enforcement will be taking place within the area in the near future and offenders could face prosecution.


MHI Vestas preferred turbine supplier for Navitus Bay

Blades to be made in Isle of Wight factory...

MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (MHI Vestas) has been selected by Navitus Bay as the preferred turbine supplier for the proposed offshore wind farm off the Dorset, Hampshire and Isle of Wight coasts. The turbines’ 80m long blades will be made in MHI Vestas’ factory in Newport on the Isle of Wight, supporting the 200 local jobs currently being created there.

MHI Vestas will supply its latest V164-8MW wind turbine. The efficiency and power of these turbines means fewer are required than would have been the case with other, less-powerful turbines. The maximum number of turbines would therefore fall from 194 to 121 for the 970MW project and reduce from 105 to 78 for the smaller 630MW option*.

This marks the first major step in the procurement process for the wind farm. Further announcements will enable other suppliers in the region to compete to supply the project. MHI Vestas will now be involved in the negotiations to select the wind farm’s operations and maintenance base from a short list of Poole, Portland and Yarmouth.



Bournville, the home of chocolate, twins with Puddletown to launch aptly named new product

Monday 24th May: The lives of residents in Puddletown, Dorset became a whole lot sweeter today with the mouth-watering announcement that the village is being twinned with Bournville, Birmingham. To celebrate the launch of Cadbury Dairy Milk Puddles, residents awoke to discover an unexpected but delicious surprise when a life-size chocolate sign was erected to mark the twinning, made of 30 kilos of solid Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate.

For the lucky residents of Puddletown the chocolate theme didn’t stop there, with the town officially being renamed as ‘PUDDLEStown’ to mark this momentous occasion. So forget mundane metal signs, Puddletown and Bournville now host the first ever village signs made entirely out of chocolate. Both signs were especially hand-crafted and stand a solid 4ft tall taking over 200 hours to create – but most likely moments for the residents to ‘demolish!’

Tramway staff were on hand to welcome visitors and discuss the development on a one-to-one basis.

The design evokes the curvy, flexible Art Deco lines of the former station building on Harbour Road, whilst incorporating twenty-first century technology and build quality.
