THE routes nuclear waste from other power plants will travel to reach Bradwell have been revealed. Controversial plans to allow Magnox to remove a planning condition barring it from storing waste removed from other plants was approved by Essex County Council in August. The intermediate level waste, which would come from Sizewell in Suffolk and Dungeness in Kent, typically consists of sludge, sand, gravel and metal. As part of the approval Magnox is required to provide the route the waste will travel once in the Dengie after arriving by train and road. County Hall will have to approve the plans before any movement begins. Some waste will arrive by train to Southminster railway station. Once it has arrived it will be taken via the B1018, Steeple Road, Foxhall Road, Batt’s Road, Bradwell Road, Steeple Road, Maldon Road, Trusses Road and the Bradwell Site Approach Road.
