CCC protest at the DRS Depot in Carlisle

LEAFLETTING AND DEMO 18th July.

Close Capenhurst Campaign are teaming up with Radiation Free Lakeland to leaflet and demonstrate against the continuing practice of hauling radioactive wastes through our city centres, towns, and villages.

The event outside the Direct Rail Services [ DRS ] Kingmoor Depot, Etterby Road, Carlisle , Cumbria CA3 9NZ, will be between 11.00. & 14.00. on Saturday July 18th

This will be the first time that any demonstration has been held at the DRS Carlisle depot, and follows on from last years leafleting session at their depot in Crewe.

CCC will continue to leaflet outside of the various railway stations through which nukiller waste is taken.

We will do this in order to show the links between nukiller new build, to increase public awareness as to just what happens at Capenhurst, and to show just what long term radioactive problems face us all.

Nukiller Waste Flasks

Leafleting Sessions.

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.

Scheduled times

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)

ChesterArrives 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.
