Underground cables through the AONB connecting homegrown, low carbon energy

The installation of the 400,000 volt cables under the Mendip Hill Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is complete.

The underground cables are connected to the new line of T-pylons between Bridgwater and Loxton and are now energised and transporting electricity.

Reinstatement of the land is underway and is continuing across the new connection route.

To keep everyone safe while we work 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.
