  • It deals with the traffic aspects of the construction of Bradwell B Nuclear Power Station which will impact heavily on all residents of Danbury and the surrounding district.

    It requires a responce from many residents to ensure that the proposed mainly road transport option is not used.
    Bradwell A was built in the 1950s and used mainly sea transport for its construction to a purpose built pontoon at Bradwell.
    To replicate this Stage One, Consultation Summary Document, Figure 6.3, Option 3 should be used.
