Information on Rail routes used to transport radioactive materials from Dounreay to Sellafield

Information released

The Office for Nuclear Regulation does not hold the information you request, however I can tell you that, the decision about modes and route is a matter for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and relevant licensees. Organisations consigning radioactive materials are free to choose the most appropriate route and mode of transport for their purposes but these must comply with UK and international regulations for safety and security.

I am sorry we are unable to assist you further on this occasion.
