We’ve carefully considered your feedback and carried out more work to establish how and where we could build the new connection.
We’ve chosen a route in sections one to four, from Wylfa to east of Llangefni – all other routes in these areas are not being taken forward. The chosen route broadly follows the existing line. We think this is the best option to keep visual effects for communities and the landscape together in one area.
We’ve also developed our work around the Menai Strait area and we’re not taking forward routes near to Llandaniel Fab, Gaerwen and Bangor. We have proposed route options to the Strait, crossing zones and the technologies we could use to go underground.
We’re continuing to carefully consider your feedback and are carrying out studies to look at communities, tourism, ecology and the landscape as we develop more detailed proposals.
Our work and your feedback
Over two stages of consultation your feedback has helped us to reduce options to keep potential effects of the new connection as low as we can. We’re continuing to use your feedback to develop our proposals ahead of another consultation later in the year.
What our work would look like
We need to use a wide range of equipment to build a new connection. Our image library contains photos and diagrams that help you see construction of new connections in other parts of Wales and England. It also shows what the equipment we could use in North Wales might look like.
