T-pylons energised between Bridgwater and Loxton

Construction of the first T-pylons between Bridgwater and Loxton began in September 2021, with all the wires that transmit the energy between Bridgwater and Loxton installed by March 2022.

The conductors are now energised and transporting electricity around the National Grid electricity network.

We have begun reinstatement across the new connection route, removing construction access, temporary roads and work pads. You may expect to see more construction traffic on local roads and we will be in touch ahead of any traffic management impacts. 

To keep everyone safe when we’re working on the highways, we put up temporary traffic lights and close some roads for a short time. We put up advance notice signs to let local road users know of any roadworks and traffic management in the area.
