THE government wants to see all cars banned from Sellafield nuclear site.
Have your say
How about brand new mono-rails to transport workers in. Connections could be central in every village and town, and all workers from as far away as Carlisle could travel to work in under 30 mins. Magic - no need for cars then.
If it's essential for safety reasons, then it's going to happen whether you like it or not so why worry!
I love the stupid and ill informed remarks about the Nuclear industry, first off there is no other site in the world like Sellafield. The traffic problem which had reduced in recent years thanks to the single occupancy rule will balloon back to previous levels as everyone will head in their own cars. The present public transport will in no way cope with a 10th of the people currently working on site and this is only from areas that actually have some form of public transport. The best idea is to remove as many non essential personnel off site, and I mean those not essential to the day to day safety and production on site. At present the site bus service doesn't cover the whole of site leaving some areas unserviced at all, the whole system would need upgrading, but as for banning all vehicles that will cause nearly all works to stop.
