THE second phase of a project to build an undersea electricity connection between Wales and Ireland is due to start next week.
The East West Interconnector, which will enable the two-way transmission of electricity between both countries, is being developed by EirGrid in connection with Flintshire County Council.
The 600m euro (£560m) project will see cables travel under the Irish Sea and underground from Barkby Beach, Prestatyn to the site of the planned converter station in Shotton.
The work will get under way in Ffynnongroyw on Monday.
