Sandford substation is ready for energisation

Located in the centre of the new Hinkley connection route, the new Sandford substation is complete and ready for energisation.

We recognise that our construction activity impacts local communities and we’re working hard to limit that impact. In this area, we’ve made space available around the boundary of the new substation to reroute the section of the Strawberry Line path off-road and built a quality hard surface that will be suitable for all users. The area is planned to be available for use from Easter 2023.
