The £2.8bn connection that will link the proposed Moorside nuclear power station in Cumbria to the electricity network will go out for public consultation at the end of October. The public will be asked for its opinion on the detailed design work for the pipeline, which has been six years in the making. National Grid said the scheme aims to balance protecting local landscapes and providing value for money. Moorside is the proposed 3.4GW nuclear power station that will be built near Sellafield in West Cumbria. Development work for Moorside is currently being carried out by Amec Foster Wheeler.
