T-pylons – public footpaths and rights of way

Where the new overhead line and the haul road cross public footpaths, we need to keep the area safe for the public and for our staff while we are working.

There will be temporary footpath closures with diversions for pedestrians at different times throughout the construction programme.

We’re building a temporary haul road along the route of the underground cable, and temporary traffic access points off the A38 at Tarnock and the A368 Towerhead Road at Sandford. The haul road allows us to move traffic off main roads directly into the construction areas, limiting our use of the local road network.

The haul road will cross the public footpaths listed below.

We’re sorry for any inconvenience these closures cause. We will keep them open as much as we can, and we will escort walkers safely across the construction area during working hours.
