Mary Scanlon MSP At Dounreay To See Changing Site

Highlands and Islands Conservative MSP Mary Scanlon saw the changing the shape of Dounreay when she visited the site on July 10th to learn more about progress with the 4 billion site restoration plan. The construction of new buildings and the demolition of old facilities is gradually changing the skyline of the site, with substantial alterations expected over the next few years as more major decommissioning projects begin to materialise.

Accompanied by site director Peter Welsh (centre) and her researcher Jamie Halcro-Johnston (right), Mrs Scanlon visited the site of a 4 million investment by UKAEA in the construction of a new police command and control building, where UKAEA's head of nuclear strategy and technology Colin Gregory explained how the project has created 60 construction jobs. The main contractor is Dingwall-based R.J. Macleod.
