New lattice pylons in Avonmouth

Our contractor, Balfour Beatty, has completed building the new 400,000 volt lattice pylons in Avonmouth. 

The focus in Avonmouth is to finalise the connection across the River Avon by erecting the  

last two pylons either side the river bank. The two new pylons will be 76-metres tall to provide the height required to allow ships to travel up and down the river. 

We expect the new pylons, to be complete, including hanging of the wires in 2024, in preparation for energisation at the end of the same year.
