Radioactive Waste Flasks to Share Arnside Viaduct with Walkers and Cyclists ?

 Movers and Shakers including green minded and not so green minded folk are
pushing ahead with the plan to open the Arnside Viaduct to walkers and
cyclists. Whats wrong with that? Nothing apart from the fact that
radioactive waste travels this route to Sellafield on a regular basis.


Several flasks are sometimes taken across the viaduct at a time with at
least two deisel engines required just in case one breaks down as the load
is so very dangerous to the public ..and a target for goodness knows what.


Along with Nuclear Free Local Authorities and Close Capenhurst, Radiation
Free Lakeland recently put a series of questions to Direct Rail Services
who operate the nuclear waste trains on behalf of UK Government. The
replies have so far been unsatisfactory to say the least given that UK
Government is putting public money into ever increasing nuclear waste
flasks journeying to Sellafield alongside public access for walkers and
cyclists sharing the same route over the Arnside Viaduct.
