To help provide additional network capacity across East Anglia, we are proposing to build permanent new infrastructure and make changes to existing infrastructure Chelmsford. This area is presented as 'Our proposals in Chelmsford' within our project background document and provides a detailed overview of our proposed locations for this infrastructure, including a new substation.
Having routed into the Chelmsford district in the north east area, the preferred corridor then travels around the north of Chelmsford and begins to head south on the western side, with Writtle and Chelmsford to the east of the corridor. The route continues south passing Margaretting and crossing over the A12 on the Brentwood district border.
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 Chelmsford.
