Middleton sub-station under construction
This is a new 400kV sub-station to accommodate additional off-shore wind generation.
The temporary pylon is complete (left) and work is in progress to transfer the nearside 400kV line from the old pylon. The first phase cables have been lowered.
Note the temporary track which was laid across the roundabout in the foreground, for delivery of wind turbines last winter.
