The world’s largest frack pad takes shape

Preston New Road is set to become the world’s largest frack pad. Hundreds of wells are planned for the Fylde.



Despite attempts by protectors to stop deliveries to the site, Cuadrilla has made progress on the rig this month.

Welcome to Frackpool Illuminations –¬†the illuminated pad can be seen clearly from many Fylde villages now, as well as the M55 and surrounding area.

There seems to be a problem with surface water. Where has it come from? Where is it draining to? What’s in the water? ¬†Whatever is on the surface of the pad is being transferred to local roads by lorries leaving the pad.
