New overhead line between Sandford and Avonmouth, featuring T-pylons

In mid-May 2021, we’ll start construction work needed to build the new overhead connection, featuring T-pylons, from Sandford to Avonmouth.

Balfour Beatty is the principal contractor for this work. Our first construction activities include building new temporary road accesses into our construction areas. To help reduce disruption we’re using some of the existing accesses and roads built for other work in this area.

To keep everyone safe while we work on the highways, we need to put up temporary traffic lights, restrict parking and close some roads for a short time. We’ll put up advance notice signs to let local road users know of any roadworks and traffic management in the area.
