£3m Stalybridge power upgrade completed

More than 50 people, from engineers to project managers, worked on the project to replace 7.4km of underground power cables.

The cables, which had been powering the area since the 1960s, have been replaced with new updated and environmentally-friendly electricity cables.

Paul McGonigle, transmission circuits manager for Electricity North West, said: “I’m proud of the engineers for the work they’ve done on this essential project.

“It’s not an easy task to replace 7.4km of underground cable, but they’ve done a great job and we’re delighted to be able to invest in the power network for local businesses and residents to enjoy for years to come.

“We all take electricity for granted every day and it’s essential projects like this that make it happen.”
