We applied to Oxfordshire County Council for full closures and have had these approved however, the footpaths will remain open until we’re working there. Posters will be in place at key locations along the route with information about the project and our helpline telephone number and email address for enquiries.
April 2022 update
We’ve made good progress since we started work in January. Our work so far has involved preparatory works, including: site set up; vegetation clearance under the watch of our project ecology and ornithology teams; access works and laying of trackway/stone roads to reach the pylon locations; Public Rights of Way closures, with notices erected; traffic management and access works signage.
We’re now installing new conductors and fittings between the pylons and the line’s power supply is switched off while we work.
Please be assured we’ll do all we can to keep any disruption to a minimum.
We expect to complete our work by Autumn 2022.
