To help provide additional network capacity across East Anglia, we are proposing to build permanent new infrastructure and make changes to existing infrastructure Braintree. This area is presented as 'Our proposals in Braintree' within our project background document and provides a detailed overview of our proposed locations for this infrastructure.
After crossing into the Braintree district, the preferred corridor continues south west parallel to the north of the A12 and railway. Passing Witham to the south and Silver End to the north before crossing the railway again heading north and continuing west towards the Chelmsford district.
We expect the reinforcement in this section to be made up of new overhead line supported by steel lattice pylons.
Watch the below presentation detailing our proposals in Braintree.
