Crossrail chairman Terry Morgan has invited developers to come forward with “holistic” ideas for certain above ground aspects of Crossrail, saying there is still room for the project to “do more”. Although such new projects will not see the benefit of Crossrail funding, the client is open to “extending the scope” of such developments. “We can still do more but the clock is running very hard right now”, said Mr Morgan.

Sellafield fined £700k for radioactive waste dumping 

Source: Construction Enquirer 

Sellafield Limited has been fined £700,000 for sending bags of radioactive waste to a landfill site in Cumbria. The bags should have been sent to a specialist facility that treats and stores low level radioactive waste. Carlisle Crown Court heard that a number of significant management and operational failings at Sellafield Limited led to the incorrect disposal of the waste at the Lillyhall landfill site in Workington. The error was caused by the wrong configuration of a new monitor which passed the bags as ‘general’ waste making them exempt from strict disposal controls.
