To help provide additional network capacity across East Anglia, we are proposing to build permanent new infrastructure and make changes to existing infrastructure Thurrock. This area is presented as 'Our proposals in Thurrock (including Tilbury substation)' within our project background document and provides a detailed overview of our proposed locations for this infrastructure.
The preferred corridor continues travelling south passing Bulphan on the west and then Hornden on the Hill on the east.
The route crosses the A13 and heads towards Linford and East Tilbury where the corridor then splits around. At this point 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 Tilbury substation to connect the new line. We expect the work to be contained within the existing boundary of the substation.
Watch the below presentation detailing our proposals in Thurrock.
