The Sizewell C Project
Received 28 August 2020
From Alan Manley
“• Noise, air quality and vibration issues of up to 1,250 HGV movements at peak construction on the A12 (that is about one every minute during a peak working day). • The effect of long term pollution from Nuclear waste on future generations is unacceptable. • The capacity of the A12 to support additional traffic; cars, vans and HGVs based on out of date traffic surveys. •The visibility of the 1250 space SP&R with bus movements, postal consolidation facility and a HGV holding ground in the event of emergencies. The site is located on prominent high ground north of the Fiveways roundabout, Hacheston. •Little landscape mitigation is being planned other than some peripheral bunds •The noise, lighting and air quality issues that will arise from the SP&R. • The cumulative impacts from future housing developments near the A12 and Scottish Power’s Friston wind farm substation construction on roads already congested by EDF traffic. •The problem of “rat running” as frustrated drivers find alternative routes to avoid congestion. •The increase in cars and light goods vehicles/vans using the B1078 between Coddenham and Wickham Market to reach the SP&R. •The need to put pressure on EDF to track “white vans” to ensure they use A14/A12…not the B1078. •The traffic impacts on the roads in and around Wickham Market. •What mitigation and compensation might be needed to address local impacts?”
