Testing of the Bransty Tunnel, Whitehaven

The request was partially successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

In November 2023 you tested the Bransty Tunnel. In the video made by Network Rail it looked like PH value was tested .

1. Were solid particulates along with the water also tested for pollutants including iron, cadmium, ammonia?

2. Have the suspended solids also been tested for arsenic and mercury?

3. Have suspended solids been collected and tested for radium, thorium and uranium?

4. If the above has not been tested what is the reason for that?

5. If the above has been tested for what are the results?

Yours faithfully,

Marianne Birkby
