08/07/15: Investment will boost electricity to Adlington

Electricity North West is investing £400,000 to upgrade the power network which supplies electricity to almost 3,000 residents and businesses in Adlington, near Chorley, Lancashire. Investment will boost electricity to Adlington

Next week the region’s power network operator, Electricity North West, will start to install more than 4km of new improved underground electricity cable between Church Street and Bolton Road (A6) in Adlington.

Engineers will be working in the area until the end of September and work will be carried out to ensure minimum disruption to local residents and motorists in the area while the project takes place.

Tim Groom, head of major projects for Electricity North West, said: “Ensuring our customers receive a reliable and efficient power supply now and for many years to come is our top priority.

“Unfortunately there is no way to install underground cables without some disruption, but we hope drivers and residents in the area understand the need for this essential project and we promise to keep any disruption to a minimum.”

There will be temporary traffic lights in place during the project which will be manned during peak times:
• Church Street – 13th July – 27th July
• Westhoughton Road (A6) – 27th July – 7th September
• Corner of Bolton Road and Wigan Road – 7th September - 21st September
• Bolton Road (A6) – 21st September – 5th October

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 @ElectricityNW.
