Sandford substation successfully energised

The new 400,000 volt substation at Sandford is now energised with electricity flowing through it.

We are currently relandscaping the land in and around the substation. We’ve created a safe space around the boundary of the new substation to reroute a section of the Strawberry Line path to off the road and built a quality hard surface area that will be suitable for all users.

Our teams are in the final stages of the legal process whereby National Grid hands the path over to North Somerset Council permanently. Once this has taken place, the Council will make an announcement of when this new section will be open.
