New Essential Infrastructure
North Wales Connection
The North Wales Connection is a proposed second connection for the Wylfa Newydd nuclear power station on Anglesey.
There is an existing line across Anglesey and north Gwynedd, but we need an additional, new connection to get the amount of power generated by 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 to North Wales.
We’re currently working on a final design, having listened to the views of residents, specialist bodies and elected representatives and taken these into account whenever we can. When we have a final design ready we will make our application for consent to the Planning Inspectorate, and will let communities know when this happens.
