The Fracking Threat

  • The proposal for 180 houses at J (Eckington Rd) is likely to result in more vehicles using Dyche Lane and Eckington Road.
  • The proposals for exploratory drilling at Marsh Lane involve bringing heavy goods vehicles along Dyche Lane and Eckington Road. Ineos Upstream, which is the company wishing to carry out the drilling, says that over one hundred vehicles per day will be going to the site. That is just in the setting-up phase.
