Sorting the groundwork on Eryri VIP

A programme of ground investigation works will begin this winter around the Dwyryd Estuary. The work will enhance our detailed knowledge of the local geology and help inform the start of the main construction on National Grid’s Eryri Visual Impact Provision (VIP) project.

Contractors working on behalf of National Grid and Hochtief UK will be carrying out a range of surveys at the project’s main sites in Garth and Llandecwyn over the coming weeks in a number of pre-agreed locations.

The work, which will include monitoring local wildlife, digging some small bore holes and taking core samples, will help us to identify additional environmental considerations and refine our plans ahead for the main construction work on site.

Please don’t be surprised therefore if you see some of our vehicles and teams in hi vis jackets out and about in the local area.

We have been granted consent by the relevant landowners for this activity where required, and National Grid will continue to work with organisations including the Eryri National Park Authority and Cyngor Gwynedd, to ensure all necessary permissions are obtained.

Together with our contractors and subcontractors, we aim to complete the work with the least disruption to local residents and visitors to the area as possible.

If you would like more information, then please get in touch with the VIP project team by emailing us at [email protected] or calling 0800 019 1898 (and leaving a message if prompted).
