Westbury already has too many HGV’s on the road, why are you adding more?

All of the residual waste that would be treated at the Northacre facility is already being transported by road within Wiltshire and often, even further afield by being needlessly transported to other EfW facilities in Europe. The development of the Northacre facility would affect the pattern of travel of that waste but in turn, reduce HGV emissions by reducing the distance of travel required for the waste – which has a positive impact on the UK as a whole.

Our transport assessment shows that comparison of daily traffic flows shows no significant changes arising from the Northacre development, with the increase in traffic on local roads for this proposed development being well below 1% and specifically less than 0.1% on the A350.
