Local electricity network
We will be removing over 67 kilometres of overhead line between Bridgwater and Avonmouth. To ensure we maintain a secure power supply to Weston-super-Mare, we will build a new substation at Sandford and reconfigure the local electricity network in North Somerset. We will also reconfigure the pylons at Hinkley Point to connect EDF Energy’s proposed new nuclear power station.
