DIGESTER news: A local resident reported last week that she had seen two tankers using the wrong route to the digester. Tamar has confirmed that the contractor was new to the delivery team and although the driver had been advised of the approved route, he was unfamiliar with the local road layouts. The new drivers have now been fully trained to use the correct routes. If anyone believes that they have seen digester traffic using the wrong routes or passing St Mark’s at school run times either let me know to pass on, or report via the following email address; Basingstoke@tamarenergy.com.
