Transport is the largest contributor to the UK’s carbon emissions and significant work is needed to reduce this. 

As the owner and operator of the transmission network, National Grid is poised to help drive the transition to cleaner transport in the UK.

Our work in Bramley, which will reinforce the electrification of the rail system, is a critical part of this.


Project overview

To support Network Rail to reinforce, future-proof, and decarbonise its electrical network, in 2022, National Grid began work to install a Supergrid transformer at Bramley substation and connect it to a new trackside feeder station at Holly Cross.

Construction work began in April 2022, with completion expected in summer 2024.
