Overview – Winter 2023
The T-pylons across the southern section of the Hinkley Connection Project route between Bridgwater and Loxton are in position with the wires installed ready for energisation.
Reinstatement of the land along the southern route is underway and will continue through to 2024.
To reduce the visual impact of the new 400,000 volt pylons, National Grid is removing 249 existing 132,000 volt lattice pylons, and overhead wires stretching 67 kilometres from the Somerset landscape.
Thank you from everyone working on the project for your patience and understanding as we progress with this vital work to connect six million homes and businesses to new sources of homegrown, low carbon energy, and help the UK meet itsnet zero ambitions.
