A public consultation runs to May 5th on the upgrading of the electricity transmission line between Bramford to Twinstead, to the south of Sudbury. This involves removing the existing smaller 132kV lines and replacing with a larger 400kV line. Most of the stretch will be overground via a line of larger pylons but two small sections are proposed to be underground with 80m X 50m sealing end compounds in the countryside at the ends of each underground section.

The route runs through some of Suffolk’s most beautiful countryside including the Dedham Vale AONB and the Stour Valley.

SPS will be responding to the consultation on how National Grid’s proposals will impact Suffolk.

Details of the project and how to take part in the consultation are available on the National Grid website.
