Looking across Morecambe Bay from Heysham over Yeoman Warf and Mort Bank towards Rampside on the North shore of Morecambe Bay. Two exploration rigs can be seen carrying out survey work for the proposed tunnel that will carry the High Voltage D C cable from Moorside Nuclear Power Station to the National Grid sub-station at Middleton Sands .

National Grid are set to start a formal consultation on the route alignment this year, before lodging a planning application in 2017. Work on the project is expected to start in 2019 and to be completed in time for the opening  Moorside in 2024.
