Austrian anti-nuclear activists are ready to renew blockades of Czech-Austrian border crossings unless the Czech Republic presents a description of progress of an overall environmental impact study of the Temelin nuclear power station in South Bohemia. The Upper-Austrian Initiative Against Nuclear Danger has accused the Czech Republic of breaching an agreement with Austria, under which the plant would be halted and undergo an internationally granted environmental impact assessment. Temelin was shutdown in January because of excessive vibrations of the main steam pipeline leading to the turbine. Later, engineers discovered a large crack in the pipeline.
