Electricity North West, the company that owns and maintains the regional power network, is installing 4km of new improved underground cable between Brinksway and Heaton Moor.

The project, which will be completed by March 2015, will help improve the quality of supply as the new electricity cables are more reliable and the project will reduce any possible future impact on customer power supplies.

Tim Groom, major projects manager for Electricity North West, said: “We are delighted to have started this major project which will bring great benefits to local residents.

“The power lines have served the area well for many years and this work ensures that we can provide a safe, reliable and efficient electricity supply to the area for many more years to come.”

Any disruption will be kept to a minimum and there will be no road closures or supply interruptions during the project.

If anyone living in the area has any queries about the project, they are advised to call Electricity North West on 0800 195 4141 or follow the company @ElectricityNW.
