Starting work to build pylons near Stogursey

We’re starting work to connect EDF’s Hinkley power station to the existing network, bringing low carbon energy to 6 million UK homes and businesses.

In February 2021, we began building a 4.5 km overhead power line north of Wick and removing a 2.3 km overhead line that runs to the Hinkley B power station.

We’re currently building temporary traffic access points and haul roads which will allow construction vehicles to reach the new pylon locations.

We’ll provide more detailed information on the construction programme as the works progress and let people know if there will be any disruptions to residents and businesses.
