Years of Road Misery if GDF Goes Ahead

At their Big Picture event, the transport spokesman from Nuclear Waste Services told people that construction would not wait for a rail link to be provided.

This would mean all plant and materials going to and from the site will be moved by road. This means several forty-four-ton lorries thundering through our towns and villages every hour for five years or more.

A transport corridor has not yet been investigated but we know that there are few routes they could use, none suitable for that sort of traffic. Imagine those vehicles negotiating the A52 at Huttoft or rumbling through Alford. Even the B1200 through Saltfleetby becomes very narrow where it meets the A1031 that goes past the site. People living on the routes leading to the site will have to wait to find out if they might be affected.
