Section G - Stour Valley
In early 2013, we announced the location for the cable sealing end compound on the western side of the Stour Valley. This equipment is needed to join the section of underground cables through the Stour Valley to the existing overhead line which runs south to Braintree.
The new cable sealing end compound will be west of the village of Alphamstone. The site has been chosen after local residents were asked for their views on two possible sites – one near Twinstead Tee and the other further to the south.
Selecting the southern site means that more than a kilometre of overhead line can be dismantled and three pylons taken down in the Stour Valley. This is in addition to the removal of the lower voltage overhead line which runs between Twinstead Tee and Bramford.
The report detailing your feedback on the location of the Western cable sealing end compound is available for you to review in our library. Copies of the report can also be found in local libraries and council offices.
