SSEN’s project manager for the works, Anthony Horne said: “We’re pleased to say that the Longcross to Ascot project is already half-way through; ahead of our planned schedule and on budget.

“We’ve ensured that residents and business owners have been kept informed of the works as they progress along the planned route and we’ve listened to any concerns that those living and working the area may have had.”
