Travel and commuting
There is very little car parking available at the Hinkley Point C site, so almost all workers travel to the site by bus. A number of park and ride sites are now in operation, one at Junction 23 of the M5, one to the south of Cannington to collect workers travelling from the west of Bridgwater and from nearby rural areas, and one to the west of Williton to collect workers travelling from the south and west of the Hinkley Point C construction site.
The dedicated Hinkley Point C bus service also runs a number of routes in the local area, servicing local villages and towns, to pick up workers and take them to the site.
The local area
Hinkley Point C is in rural Somerset, 9 miles from the lively town of Bridgwater (population c38,000) and within easy access of the hamlets of Wick, Burton, Shurton and Stolford.
