The works to replace underground cables and renew substation equipment will get under way 2 September and will run for approximately six months.
Yu Qian, SSEN’s project manager for the Thames Valley project, said: “At SSEN, we are driving our commitment to customers to ensure that they have the most resilient and future-proof network to meet their requirements, now and in the years to come.
“The underground cabling section of this three-kilometre long upgrade will see the removal of cabling that we know will soon be reaching the end of its working life, replacing it with a modern alternative that will serve the area for decades.”
