Radiation remediation work at Dalgety Bay has edged closer with the start of ground surveys at the contaminated beach. Investigations into ground conditions began on Monday,before the long-awaited clean-up of dumped radioactive debris from the Second World War, which is due to begin in spring 2019. The Ministry of Defence confirmed this week engineers are now on site, having secured access. Stephen Ritchie, of the MoD’s Defence Infrastructure Organisation, said: “Work started on site on Monday on a ground investigation survey which has been the subject of ongoing negotiations with the landowner.“That’s likely to take six weeks, depending on the weather.” Updating south and west Fife councillors on progress, Mr Ritchie also said it was hoped planning consent would be issued soon for the remediation works.
