Controversial pylons to be reviewed if Hinkley scrapped

The line of pylons planned to connect Hinkley Point to the National Grid Credit: ITV News

A project to build a line of pylons to connect the proposed nuclear power station at Hinkley Point with Avonmouth could be put on hold, if the plant does not get approved next month.

EDF’s power station is the main but not the only reason for our connection project.

If it doesn’t get the go-ahead our project would go on hold while we review the implications for our network and for other sources of power that we have to connect.
