Final route wide consultation now open: 5 October to 16 December 2016

The North Wales Connection is a proposed second connection for the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on Anglesey. 

There is an existing line in North Wales, but we need an additional, new connection to get the amount of power from the new station to the homes and businesses that need it. The new connection is a crucial part of providing reliable low carbon power and unlocking the investment the new power station will bring for North Wales.

Since our last announcement, the route has been updated in places and we’re also proposing changes to the existing pylon line that will help us reduce effects on a number of communities and properties. We believe our proposals are the best option based on all the information we have but they can still change. We want to hear your views on our detailed proposals to see if there are ways we can further reduce any effects.

We hope to see you at one of our events, where members of the team will be on hand to answer your questions. Find out where we are here.

You can now see detailed proposals showing what the second connection for Wylfa Newydd could look like, including the proposed location of pylons and a tunnel under the Menai Strait.

Developing our proposals and your feedback 

Over two stages of consultation, your feedback has played an important part in influencing our proposals and has helped us to understand what different people, community groups and specialist organisations feel is most important to them.

What the connection could look like

Our Image Library and Project Films show lots more detail about what the second connection could look like and the equipment we might need to build it.

This is likely to be our last consultation on the whole connection so it’s really important you take part so your views can be considered.
