Hinkley Point C site

Hinkley Point C will be the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK. The planned twin unit UK EPR is capable of generating 3,260MW of secure, low carbon electricity for 60 years. That’s enough to power around 6 million UK homes.

Watch video: Hinkley Point C Associated Development - Combwich Wharf and Freight Laydown

Combwich Wharf

We are refurbishing the existing Combwich Wharf site for the delivery of large items during the construction of the power station. It is an important element of our transport strategy to maximise the use of sea-borne deliveries and reduce the use of roads. Once the redundant features on the old wharf have been removed, a new quay and goods wharf will be created together with modifications to the berthing bed within the River Parrett. A temporary freight lay-down facility will also be created to the south-east of Combwich, adjacent to the existing access road to the wharf. This will provide a direct route to the C182 (bypassing the village) and lead directly to the Hinkley Point C site. The new wharf will be a permanent facility which we will continue to use during the operation of Hinkley Point C. The lay-down facility will be temporary and eventually entirely restored to agricultural land.

Cannington Park and Ride

We are building a Park and Ride to the south of Cannington to collect workers travelling from the west of Bridgwater and from nearby rural areas before they travel to the Hinkley Point C site by bus. Visitors to the HPC development site and the Public Information Centre will also be able to use the service during construction. The Park and Ride is located to the south of Cannington, north of the A39. It will have 252 parking spaces and also has space for motorcycles and bicycles. The Park and Ride will be a temporary facility used for the duration of the construction phase. It will then be removed and the land restored to its existing agricultural use

M5 Junction 24 Park and Ride and Freight Management Centre

We are building a Park and Ride for workers and a freight management centre at Junction 24 of the M5 Motorway. Together, these facilities form an important part of our transport strategy and will help to reduce and control the amount of traffic on the roads. The site is an existing warehouse to the north-west of Junction 24 of the M5, between the M5 and A38 (Taunton Road) that we're upgrading. Initially, until our facilities at Junction 23 of the M5 are available, there will be space for up to 1,300 cars, minibuses and vans and also include motorcycle and bicycle spaces. This will reduce to 698 spaces once the facilities at Junction 23 become available. The freight management centre will initially have space for 140 heavy goods vehicles reducing to 55 spaces once the facilities at Junction 23 become available. Once Hinkley Point C is complete the site will be available for other storage or distribution purposes in the future

M5 Junction 23 Park and Ride and Freight Management Centre

We are also building a Park and Ride for workers and a freight management centre at Junction 23 of the M5 Motorway. Together, these facilities combined with J24 facilities form an important part of our transport strategy and will help to reduce and control the amount of traffic on the roads. The development is located to the west of Junction 23 of the M5, immediately west of the A38 (Bristol Road) and adjacent to the Dunball roundabout. There will be space for up to 1,300 cars, minibuses and vans, and associated motorcycles and bicycles and also include security and welfare facilities. The freight management centre will have space for 85 heavy goods vehicles and other vehicles together with a freight checking area. There will also be a consolidation facility for postal/courier deliveries and an employee induction centre. The site is temporary and will only be used throughout the construction of Hinkley Point C. The site and its buildings can then be removed and the area restored to its current agricultural use.

Bridgwater A Accommodation Campus

We are building campuses in Bridgwater and at the Hinkley Point C site to accommodate workers who move to the area. The Bridgwater A Campus is the largest of these developments. The site is located on part of a former plastics factory to the north of the A39 (Bath Road).The campus will provide living space and recreational facilities for 850 workers within 25 separate accommodation buildings. The campus is designed with an amenity building which includes a canteen, laundry and gym. One full size and two 5-a-side pitches will also be available on the site for use by our workers and members of the public at certain times. The campus is expected to operate for six and a half years. The development will leave a positive legacy for the future. After being used by EDF Energy, the buildings will be removed but key infrastructure will be maintained for future development.

Hinkley Point C On-Site Accommodation Campus

In addition to worker accommodation in Bridgwater, around 500 of our workers will live on-site in a purpose built Campus in the south eastern corner of the Hinkley Point C site. The Campus will be accessed from the C182 and in addition to 15 accommodation buildings will feature a canteen, gym and two all weather sports pitches. The on-site campus will house workers for around 6 years before being removed after the construction of Hinkley Point C has finished. The land will then be restored to its original form.

Williton Park and Ride

We are building a Park and Ride to the west of Williton to collect workers travelling from the south and west of the Hinkley Point C construction site. The Park and Ride is a former lorry park on the B3190 to the west of Williton. It will have 160 parking spaces and include space for bicycles and motorbikes. The Williton Park and Ride is a temporary development and after the construction of Hinkley Point C will be removed to return the land to its original use.
