Lancs Fracking Update (PNR) – Mon 3rd Jul, 2017hide details
With the threat of Cuadrilla’s main drilling equipment beginning to try to move on site soon (though the drilling rig itself is still erected in the PR Marriott yard near Chesterfield) resistance at Preston New Road is stepping up a gear. Currently a pair of small drilling rigs are on site, drilling the initial conductor casing in before the main rig arrives. Lancashire communities are continuing to resist construction of a new fracking site by Cuadrilla Resources at Preston New Road near Blackpool. A rolling blockade of the construction is taking place daily outside the site and is having a significant effect in disrupting Cuadrilla’s plans.
