Cuadrilla’s New Route Proposals

Following the Secretary of State’s decision and against this background Cuadrilla appointed an independent traffic consultant who commissioned extensive traffic surveys over the summer and
autumn this year to assess possible routes to the Roseacre Wood site. Based on the conclusions of this work, Cuadrilla is now proposing to utilise three routes to provide access for HGVs between the A583 and A585 and the Roseacre Wood site.
 
 
Maps of the three proposed HGV routes are enclosed and they are:
Green Route from A585 to the Site via B5269 Thistleton Road, Elswick High Street and Roseacre Road;
Red Route from A585 to the Site via B5269 Thistleton Road, Elswick High Street, Lodge Lane, Preston Road and Higham Side Road and through the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Defence High
Frequency Communications Site (DHFCS) Inskip facility; 
Blue Route from A583 to the Site via Clifton Lane, Station Road, Dagger Road, Salwick Road,
and Inskip Road and through the DHFCS facility.
 
The management of the three routes in order to minimise disruption and ensure safe and efficient
working will be set out in a Traffic Management Plan, in agreement with Lancashire County Council,
which will itself be subject to a planning condition.

A very interesting letter from Mike Hill

A letter from Mike Hill

 

“I am now on bottled water and intend to only use what comes out of the tap/faucet to get a bath or flush the toilet wash the car etc.I did my own analysis of the risk and I decided to take into account two key factors”:

1. Risk of contamination (by drilling mud and fracking waste) of shallow aquifer around PNR.

2. Risk of this contamination making its way to where UU presently extract our drinking water from. (Hydrogeology).

There are many other factors of course. Not least the flooding of the Pad and so the opportunity for the operator to open all BOVs where necessary and save a fortune in treatment costs. Might sound a bit paranoid but I’ve seen it done. That might explain rather odd colours and polluting of Carr Bridge Brook. Continue reading A very interesting letter from Mike Hill

Europa to challenge council over Leith Hill oil site

“It has taken a considerable period of time so far. It has been deferred twice. So we have decided to appeal for non-determination and at the same time we will resubmit the traffic management plan which will go back to the planning committee.

“We feel we will have a better opportunity for a successful outcome if we take this twin approach.”                                                                                                                                                                       Chief Executive, Hugh Mackay
