Sellafield exodus begins Add comments

THE exodus of nuclear workers away from Sellafield is about to begin – but first of all into Allerdale.
Have your say
Moan, moan; get real! Dave; three quarters of the Sellafield workforce lives north of the site. Anon; 200 extra commuters into Workington isn't exactly likely to cause gridlock. Jar Jar; how exactly is moving workers off the site going to make it harder to get there? Darth; er ... last time I looked, Albion Square was in the town centre. But the moaners think the workers there won't spend any money! (see previous reports)
Ha- good luck getting into and out of Workington and Whitehaven at rushhour when the move happens.
Lets hope they make a better job of it than when they moved their Finance department to Westlakes. That saw people from Gosforth and points south driving past the gates of Sellafield to get to Westlakes - adding to rather than reducing the traffic. Have they done any analysis on the home addresses of the people they propose to move to Workington to ensure the same thing doesn't happen again?
