Building new pylons near Stogursey

Work continues to connect Hinkley Point C power station to the existing National Grid network, which when complete, will connect six million homes and businesses to homegrown, low carbon energy. 

We’re upgrading the existing 275,000 volt pylons to connect the new T-pylons near Bridgwater to the new Hinkley Point C power station. This final construction phase of the project is expected to be complete at the end of 2024.

When we’re working on the highways, to keep everyone safe 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.
