Final phase of £3m Stalybridge power upgrade starts

Engineers from the network operator are replacing 7.4km of underground power cable, which has been keeping the lights on since the 1960s, with new updated and environmentally-friendly electricity cables.

John Pietsch, transmission south manager for Electricity North West, said: “These cables have been in place since 1960 and they have served the area well but it’s now time for our engineers to replace them to ensure that every home and business in the area continues to enjoy the power they need when they need it.

“We’re delighted to start the next and final phase of this essential project and I’m proud of our engineers’ dedication to safely complete the complex project, which has involved crossing the River Tame and Huddersfield Canal bridges.”
