In the last week Northern Powergrid have commenced works diverting the existing overhead lines that run from north to south. This involves the excavation of two number trenches for the electric cables to be located underground on the western boundary of Cell A and through the proposed Spine Road to facilitate Cell D and the Spine Road. These are very important enabling works and ensure that we can deliver the new schools and necessary infrastructure.
Our consultant team are working closely with Northern Powergrid to provide a safe and sensitive approach to the method of works to minimise disruption. The works are due to be completed by the end of November when you will see the overhead cables and associated equipment removed from site.
