New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally has announced that she will scrap a plan for a radioactive waste dump in western Sydney.

The Government was planning to move thousands of tonnes of waste from an old uranium smelter from a site in Hunters Hill to Kemps Creek near Penrith.

The ABC reports that it was indicated last week that the premier would look at relocating it interstate or overseas.
