A bit of a blockage

by 3arn0wl

The A440 was anything but harmonious earlier today…

A number of police escorts flanked the slow procession of the two Archimedes screw turbines and a large Crown crane,  along the ring road to the banks of the Burbling,  creating a huge tail-back of traffic.

Lifting the turbines and placing them into the water generated watts of interest, as did the divers securing them into position.

Chief Exec of Green Gen, Jenny Rator,  said: “With the strong and constant current of the Burbling, the turbines are already kicking out more electricity than we’d expected.”

That must’ve been a bit embarrassing for them, but I guess you have to go with the flow with these things.
