Japan plans to bulldoze access route to damaged nuclear plant

TOKYO, March 16 (Reuters) - Japan’s nuclear safety agency said on Wednesday that operators of nuclear power plant that was critically damaged by an earthquake and tsunami last week plan to bulldoze an emergency route to the facility to allow access for fire trucks.

The Daiichi plant in Fukushima, northern Japan, was billowing smoke or steam on Wednesday after fire broke out at the crippled facility.

Workers briefly abandoned salvage operations on Wednesday after radiation levels spiked.
