Halstead: Pylon demolition could restore woodland
9:26am Friday 1st February 2013 in News
Residents have welcomed plans to take down electricity pylons and restore a woodland.
National Grid will put an acre-sized cable sealing end compound west of Alphamstone, meaning three large pylons can be taken down and part of a county woodland reinstated.
The equipment is needed as part of the Bramford to Twinstead Tee connection project, a plan to upgrade the electricity power supply for the east of England.
