The company is set to replace nearly four kilometres of underground cable. The cable, which has reached the end of its working life, runs along the banks of the River Thames and forms part of a project that will include upgrading the local substation serving Reading’s residential and business customers.

SSEN’s construction manager for the Reading works, Miles Crossley said: “Reading is a thriving city and this programme of works will strengthen its existing power supply, while also allowing for future commercial and residential connections.

“The substation element alone will provide power to over 26,000 customers, with the overall programme of works keeping the infrastructure resilient and secure for decades to come.”
