Have your say

Two more steel precipitator structures are set to be demolished at Cockenzie Power Station next week.

Controlled explosions will take place a 2pm on Thursday, July 24 to raze the 300 tonne structures, each standing at 34 metres tall and measuring 10 metres by 12.5 metres wide.

This will be the sixth controlled explosive demolition to take place at Cockenzie and will again be managed by ScottishPower’s contractor Brown and Mason.

As with previous activity, no road closures will be required during the demolition. A section of the John Muir Way that runs parallel to the sea wall near the plant will be closed for a short time.

Members of the public wishing to view the demolition should congregate on the Greenhills.
