Cumbria Constabulary’s Sellafield Policing Unit are tackling speeding and traffic offences on the commuter route to the site following complaints from local communities.
People living in Beckermet, Ennerdale, Kirkland and St.Bees have long highlighted that speeding is an issue.
Despite letters to staff from Sellafield Ltd, who own the site, feedback from villagers suggests a problem still exists.
A campaign to tackle the issue begins on Monday 11th February, jointly supported by Copeland police and the newly formed Sellafield Policing Unit.
It will run throughout the month, with officers situated in prime locations across on the roads with the aim of catching those who are speeding, using their mobile phones whilst driving or driving vehicles which are unfit to be on the roads.
