Footpaths affected by National Grid work 2024

Date: April - Oct 2024

During 2024 National Grid will be upgrading the overhead electricity line between Bramley in Hampshire to Melksham in Wiltshire. The project involves both the replacement of pylon fittings and replacing and upgrading the conductors - these are the wires strung between the 229 pylons on the route, along which the electricity is transmitted. The route of the power line passes through the Vale of Pewsey.

Whilst the work is being done, it is necessary to temporarily close public rights of way (roads, byways, bridleways and footpaths) that pass underneath the overhead lines in the areas they will be working
