Lafarge reveals quarry building plans

Cement giant Lafarge has unveiled plans for a sports facility on the former Blue Circle quarry site in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.
If proposals get the go-ahead, the 153 ha site in Magheramorne will get a mountain biking centre, a scuba diving centre, international film and television studios, a nature reserve, a museum and heritage railway and a harbour village with eco-friendly housing.

Project manager Lloyd McInally: 'Many of our Blue Circle UK cement works are served by good transport links and, once they reach the end of their use as quarry sites, provide a good opportunity for brownfield redevelopment projects.'
