Our main refurbishment work will begin in May 2023 and last until October 2023. Ahead of this, and so that our contractors can access the pylons safely, we’ll clear some vegetation from around the pylons. Depending on where you live near the line, you may notice our contractors at work while at other times there is no work taking place. This doesn’t mean work has stopped, just that we’re working elsewhere along the line.
A full, proposed timetable is available below:
June – October 2022: Project preparation from technical professionals on the scheme
October 2022 – February 2023: First round of vegetation clearance work in line with the agreed ecological mitigation requirements and licenses
April – May 2023: Second round of vegetation clearance works in line with the agreed ecological mitigation requirements and licenses
May – October 2023: Overhead line refurbishment work
October - December 2023: Demobilisation, reinstatement and expected completion.
