Our proposals in Mid Suffolk (and Babergh north of substation)

To help provide additional network capacity across East Anglia, we are proposing to build permanent new infrastructure and make changes to existing infrastructure South Norfolk. This area is presented as 'Our proposals in Mid Suffolk (and Babergh north of substation)' within our project background document and provides a detailed overview of our proposed locations for this infrastructure. 

From the county boundary between South Norfolk and Mid Suffolk, the preferred corridor runs south, passing Mellis and Gislingham and crossing the railway.

The route corridor continues south past Stowupland and Needham Market where it crosses back over the railway before it turns eastwards to connect into Bramford substation.

The graduated swathe splits around Offton and we are considering which route would be most appropriate here.

We expect the reinforcement in this section to be made up of new overhead line supported by steel lattice pylons.

We would need to carry out some work at the Bramford substation to connect the new line into it. We expect the work to be contained within the existing boundary of the substation.
