WPD’s existing overhead line to Weston-super-Mare is changing

We’re working with Western Power Distribution (WPD) to modify their existing network and to connect the new WPD substation at Sandford.

In July 2021, we started work to build nine new WPD lattice pylons north-west of Sandford substation towards Puxton. This year, we’ll hang the wires on the pylons, instal two short sections of underground cables to connect the new pylons into the substation and complete the work to divert a short section of existing overhead line, using wooden poles to the south of the substation.

During 2023, we’ll remove existing WPD lattice pylons to the north and south of the substation.
