The Hinkley Connection Project is progressing. National Grid: “In April 2022, we completed building the new pylons and overhead connection along the southern part of the route between Bridgwater and Loxton.
In July 2022, we will start building the remaining overhead connection from Sandford to Seabank, near Avonmouth.
We’re using the new T-pylons for part of the route between Sandford and Portishead, and new traditional lattice pylons through Avonmouth to make the final connection into Seabank substation.
We will continue to directly contact the businesses close to where our work is being carried out to coordinate our construction activities.”

You can find some great pictures and video here of the the world’s first T-pylon being built in Somerset.

Work is progressing around Crook’s Marsh with the profiling of the land and the stone deliveries Have strated to ramp up. All vehicles working on behalf of the Hinkley Connection Project display the project identifier below. If you have any concerns please let us know via email.
