  • Ascot to Longcross Network Upgrade

    Improving our network to power the future

  • We're constructing a multi-million pound project to upgrade the electricity network between Ascot and Longcross.

    The £7.2 million programme of works spans a 14km long section of our Thames Valley network and will run over an 11 month period.

    In addition to the improving the cable network, the substation at the site of the Military Vehicles and Engineering Establishment will be refurbished to meet the needs of the upgraded electricity infrastructure.

    The Project Manager for the works, Anthony Horne explains more: 

    “This is a substantial series of works that we will carry out over nearly a year to help future-proof the network that serves homes and businesses from Ascot to Longcross and all the areas in between.

    “The project is required to enable large, new connections for the expansion of businesses and homes across the region, while strengthening the resilience of the network.

    “As well as the upgrades to the infrastructure, parts of the network will also be reconfigured to ensure the best supply to our customers.”

    In relation to the works, which started in January 2019, a series of public engagement events were held locally to enable residents and business owners to meet our team, find out more about the route of the works and raise any questions they might have. As a result of these meetings we have been working with Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council and Surrey County Council to alleviate concerns raised by businesses and residents regarding the ongoing programme of roadworks.

    The revised programme of works can be found below.

    To keep up to date on our traffic management including road closures please visit roadworks.org and search for your postcode. 

    There are no planned interruptions to your electricity supply and this installation will not affect the existing supplies within the area.
