The Government is providing funding worth £2.8 million to improve transport links to the UK’s first nuclear power station in more than 20 years.

The Hinkley Point C power plant in Somerset, being built by EDF Energy, will include two reactors which will be capable of generating 3.2GW of electricity. That’s enough to power nearly six million homes or an area twice the size of London.

The cash will be used to improve connections between railway and the power station and local bus services, for a cycle route linking Bridgwater to Hinkley Point as well as fixing potholes and general roads maintenance.
