On May 31st members of TASC joined with other local groups concerned about the impact of Sizewell C in order to take part in a walk along the route that hundreds of lorries would use if Sizewell C were to go ahead. The B1122 is a lovely quiet county road entirely unsuited for the enormous increase in traffic that would come with turning the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty into the biggest construction site in Europe.

Members of Friends of the Earth (FoE), Shut Down Sizewell Campaign (SDSC), the B1122 Action Group, Theberton and Eastbridge Action Group (TEAG) and others came and joined the walk. Those taking part had a variety of reasons for doing so ranging from fears about the disruption that the increase in traffic would cause, to objections to the whole Sizewell C project.

RESIDENTS WALK AGAINST SIZEWELL C’S INTOLERABLE IMPACT ON THE AREA

Press Release

A group of local residents will walk from Yoxford to Sizewell on the 31st May to draw attention to the intolerable impact the construction of Sizewell C will have on the area, should it ever go ahead.  People of all opinions – from those  opposing nuclear power as a means of generating electricity to those incensed at the local impact of 600 large vehicle movements a day along the B1122 through picturesque and tranquil villages – will join forces and make their feelings known by undertaking the walk.
