One of the regular activities of CCC is leafleting outside of the various railway stations through which DRS [ Direct Rail Services ] radioactive waste flasks are taken.
This is done to in order to highlight the relationship between the URENCO Uranium Enrichment plant at Capenhurst, and the problem of nukiller waste.
There is a very large amount of such high level radioactive waste which is stored at Sellafield.
There will be another leafleting session outside of Chester Station on Friday April 24th from 16.30. to 18.00.
The next nukiller waste trains leafleting session after that will take place in Warrington during May.
Here are some of the Scheduled DRS (Direct Rail Services) train times for the period of December 15th 2014 to May 15th 2015.
Crewe Coal Sidings (DRS) to Valley Nuclear Electric
Chester – Passes through – 08.05.
Valley Nuclear Electric to Crewe Coal Sidings (DRS)
Chester – Arrives 16.43. & Departs 16.59.
It should be noted that these DRS nukiller waste flasks only pass through the station when there is a need to transport radioactive fuel rods to Sellafield.
So we are still looking for train spotters to alert us when these flasks pass through Chester, and a number of other stations, each Monday to Friday.
