Work at Churchill
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 June 2018, WPD and their contractors started work to upgrade the existing substation at Churchill and to modify the electricity network to the east of the substation.
WPD completed this work in July 2020. This is a major milestone in our programme to build the Hinkley Connection Project. The upgrades reinforce the local electricity network in the South West before we remove the existing WPD pylons from Bridgwater to Avonmouth.
