National Grid has announced the draft route for the new 400,000 volt power connection between Bridgwater and Seabank near Avonmouth.
The controversial scheme has followed nearly three years of planning. National Grid claims it has listened to the views of local people and experts.
We’ve been very keen to listen to the views of local people, for example on the importance of the Mendip Hills where we now plan to use underground cables. We’re very pleased that the new connection will take up to 95 pylons out of the landscape.
