National Grid overhead power line refurbishments - Update

Project description

The power lines from Landulph to Exeter were built in the 1960s. Our job is to maintain the overhead power lines so the electricity network is kept in good working order. This ensures that everyone has the power they need on demand and that safety standards are upheld.

In 2016, we carried out essential refurbishment of the overhead line between Indian Queens and Landulph. This project is a continuation of those refurbishment works.

We’re investing in the maintenance of equipment which, after half a century of service on the line, is due for refurbishment. Our work will include painting pylons and general refurbishment along the route. A wire will also need to be put in place along the pylons.

Unfortunately, we’ll need to close some short sections of road for a short time so that we can safely access power lines. Our map above shows the road closures in more detail. Please click on the closure routes for dates. We’ll keep residents up-to-date on the progress of the work and any dates that the local road network is due to be affected.

 

You can sign up to be alerted to any works affecting the roads in your area via roadworks.org.
