Rail & Road

The proposed EfW facility has excellent road and rail links.

As part of the original application, the proposals considered the effect of the facility on the road network if all of the waste were to travel there by road.

Even when considering this extreme scenario (given the excellent rail links to the site), the assessment carried out has demonstrated that during both the construction and operational phase the junctions would operate in a satisfactory manner. The assessment has further shown that the residual traffic impacts associated with the facility can be fully accommodated on the existing highway network.

The revised proposals will reduce the potential impact still further, with a third less waste being carried to the facility.

Oxwellmains Landfill site already accepts household waste from East Lothian and Edinburgh, and was until recently accepting household waste from the Scottish Borders.

In brief, the case for the revised proposal is strengthen by the facts that:

 two thirds of the waste will arrive at the facility by rail, reducing the carbon footprint of the facility 
● only waste produced in East and Mid Lothian, and Edinburgh will be accepted, so no waste will be transported over long distances – something that the Government is keen to discourage.
