To help provide additional network capacity across East Anglia, we are proposing to build permanent new infrastructure and make changes to existing infrastructure Basildon and Brentwood. This area is presented as 'Our proposals in Basildon and Brentwood' within our project background documentand provides a detailed overview of our proposed locations for this infrastructure.
Passing Ingatestone on the west the route crosses the A12 and the railway in the north of the Brentwood district. The route then travels directly south crossing multiple times between the Basildon and Brentwood districts. Passing Hutton on the west and Billericay on the east. Continuing to then cross the A127 and railway on the border of the Thurrock district.
We expect the reinforcement in this section to be made up of new overhead line supported by steel lattice pylons.
