High Level Radioactive Waste Trains
Highly Radioactive waste flasks containing used atomic fuel rods are regularly transported on trains through this station.
These waste trains are operated by DRS [ Direct Rail Services ].
They pass through this station on the way to Sellafield on the West Cumbrian coast, via the DRS depots at Crewe or Carlisle.
These used fuel rods come from various atomic reactors across the UK.
They are transported through population centres including Barrow, Bristol, Chester, Edinburgh, Lancaster, London, Preston, Runcorn, Stafford, Warrington and Wigan.
These Waste Train Cargoes are highly dangerous.
They are the most dangerous cargoes carried on our railways.
They continuously emit low-level-radiation, and any increase in radiation means an increased risk of various cancers.
As a result of a serious accident or terrorist attack these flasks could break open, releasing highly-radioactive material that would blow for miles in the wind and could kill many people in the immediate area.
What you can do.
– Let others know about these radioactive waste trains.
– Support the campaign to stop more Atomic Power Stations being built at Wylfa, Hinkley, or Moorside. and thus stop more radioactive waste from being created.
