Construction information: temporary construction compounds

What’s involved in building a new high-voltage electricity connection?

We need to set up construction compounds at key locations along the route of the new connection. These will be used to support the construction work and day-to-day operations on site. Larger compounds will include temporary offices, toilets and equipment storage areas. Smaller sites will be used for equipment deliveries and short-term storage near to construction areas. They will all be removed at the end of the project.

Compounds will have a hard-standing surface and will be secured by an outer perimeter fence. Portable low noise generators will be required to power the sites and we will manage drainage and disposal of all waste at these locations. These compounds will be monitored out of working hours by a security guard.
