Please see attached a letter I have received from National Grid regarding the work in our area.
In summary, National Grid is now in the latter stages of the project. However, due to delays because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the knock-on effect to the supply chain, they expect work will continue until Spring 2022.
The replacement cable is complete, and is now being tested. The old cable, equipment, and materials from the working areas will be removed later this year and reinstatement work carried out, including resurfacing and fence repairs.
The site office cabins from Rowdown substation and stone chippings from a temporary haul road off Mickleham Way which leads to the substation will then be removed. This will bring most of the work to an end with only minor electrical works continuing within the substations until Spring 2022.
None of the work will affect local electricity supplies. Residents neighbouring the sites will be kept informed as work progresses.
