UKPN Update - Emergency Footpath Closure
Unfortunately, on the final clean through before the pull back of the duct, there was a further release last night of the eco-bentonite. The path has been inspected and closed down again for safety purposes as an emergency measure.
All resources available are being put into the site today to ensure it is open as soon as possible and, if possible, an adequate route will be signed as a diversion with an explanation in the interim.
The project is now very close to completion and UK Power Networks are assessing environmental impact and pulling together a written mitigation plan in consultation with SWT.
