Horizon Nuclear Island Road Build Offer
by Simon Roberts
As part of its plans to build Wylfa B on Anglesey, Horizon Nuclear Power has offered to build a by-pass around Llanfachraeth village on the A5025.
The joint venture between the UK subsidiaries of German energy giants E.ON and RWE believes that building the by-pass would add extra weight in its bid to build a new nuclear power station at Wylfa Head near Cemaes, given the anxiety over likely increased traffic flows through Llanfachraeth.
Local residents will have the opportunity to speak with Horizon Nuclear Power about these proposals for a stretch of road which has seen a number of accidents over recent years.
The developer is mindful of the need to ensure that traffic on the A5025 delivering equipment to the Wylfa B site at Cemaes will have a minimal impact on the local environment and the dauily lives of people in the Llanfachraeth area.
With the decommissioning of the existing Wylfa power station due in December 2010, operator Magnox North and Anglesey Council are already looking closely at the transport implications on the island.
