The power lines from Indian Queens to Landulph 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.
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.
Work is now underway and will take place in sections over the summer. The work will include include inspection of foundations, renovation of pylons and replacement of insulators and fittings. A wire will also need to be put in place along the pylons. It may appear that nothing is happening depending on where you live, which means refurbishment is taking place elsewhere. We expect the work to finish in the autumn, and reinstatement of the land we’ve used will finish in November.
