Traffic and transport

What will be the impact of traffic?
The 3Rs facility will operate 24/7, but in keeping with current waste deliveries to the Britaniacrest operation, these will be restricted to the following:

07.30 - 17.00 Monday to Friday and 07.30 - 12.00 on Saturdays.  There will be no deliveries on Sundays or Bank Holidays
Will the facility add hundreds of extra HGVs to the road network?

The site already has planning permission for 123 vehicles per day and we are not seeking to change this.  The proposed operational facility will not generate any additional HGV traffic at any time during the day over that already permitted.  Importantly, we may even reduce the number of HGV movements because much less material needs to be removed from the site than enters it - which is not the case at present.
