EDF Energy has identified the B1122 as the main access route to deliver the Sizewell C development. This route will need to accommodate HGV vehicles for the delivery of materials, coach traffic for transporting workers to the site, abnormal loads and car trips by individual workers/visitors. Following the Stage 1 consultation by EDF Energy, concerns were raised around the lack of information provided for transport related mitigation for the B1122.
In response to this vacuum, Suffolk County Council commissioned a study to carry out a high level assessment for potential improvements, based on those proposed for the Sizewell B development. This report considers a high level environmental assessment; a cost estimate for delivering improvements and an assessment of benefits. There is also an appendix with supporting detail and an additional report that responds to questions raised.
