The £3.7 million programme of upgrade works will begin on Wednesday 14 April and will benefit over 19,000 Poole residents. The project will run for eight months to enable the upgrade of 2.5 kilometers of underground cable; new sections of modern, robust cable will replace the existing oil filled cable which is reaching the end of its working life, allowing for a stronger network with capacity for future commercial and residential connections.
SSEN as a Statutory Undertaker have the right to install/maintain their plant and equipment within Public Highway under the Highways Act of 1980, there are no rights to install/maintain plant and equipment within private property without the consent of the landowners. The route chosen is the most direct and therefore the most economical route.
There is no process by which SSEN offer compensation for any inconvenience or loss caused in the undertaking of their statutory duties. However this does not affect your Statutory Rights.
We have applied for various road closures and traffic management measures to be able to install these works in a safe manner. Where road closures are being implemented the Roads will become closed to through traffic. However, our construction works are generally constrained to approx. 100-200m in length, so residents and local traffic will have access either side of where we are currently working. When working directly outside a property we make every effort to maintain access however there will be occasions when we will not be able to enable vehicles in or out of a property. We request that you make alternative arrangements to park vehicles. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
Where our works affect bus stops these will be closed and we generally request that a temporary stop be located within a short walk of the original bus stop. Where Roads are closed buses will divert to an alternative route, information regarding the changes will be posted by the bus operators.
