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?

They still haven't thought this through properly. It may be all well and good cutting the numbers of cars travelling to the site but how the hell are people going to get there? The public transport infrastructure just isn't capable of coping with the numbers of people that need to get to site daily.

Hmm well here we go again. Shops dying in Copeland and Allerdale and we export well paid workers out of the town centres during opening hours. Is it not possible to station some of these people in Town centres, they could shop at lunchtimes and help trade. Do we need to ask Mary Portas first?
