Electricity network modifications at Avonmouth

We are working with Western Power Distribution (WPD) to make significant changes to their local electricity network by removing 67km of their existing overhead line and pylons.

In March 2019, we started construction activity at Avonmouth to modify WPD’s substation and replace a section of overhead lines going north, out of the substation, with new underground cables.

This work was carried out by WPD and Balfour Beatty and was completed in September 2020, achieving an important milestone to remove seven pylons from Avonmouth and across the M49.
