Connecting T-pylons to the existing network

From January 2023, our contractors Morrisons Energy and Balfour Beatty started pre-liminary works needed to connect the new T-pylons from Bridgwater to the existing Hinkley to Bridgwater overhead line. This included vegetation clearances and site preparations for main works which started in March.

The main works require the installation and removal of temporary masts, the removal of two existing pylons and the installation of two new 400kv lattice pylons.

As part of these works, one of the circuits must pass under the new overhead line and this will be done using underground cables.

We will notify local residents about on-site activity ahead of the start of works.
