EDF has discounted a new road from the A12 to the coast, saying the B1122, with some safety improvements, will be perfectly adequate as the main route to and from the new nuclear power station. Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group on Sizewell (TEAGS) says the power plant’s traffic will have a “devastating impact” on the area. EDF says at peak construction there could be more than 1,500 lorry and bus movements a day – a 542% increase on current levels. TEAGS, which is not campaigning against the new power station and welcomes the benefits it could bring, wants to see a relief road, similar to the D2 route proposed but not built for Sizewell B. It said as well as being the main traffic route, the B1122, a narrow, winding country road, would also be the emergency and evacuation route.
