The onshore cable route is about 37 km (23 miles) long and sometimes crosses a public highway, private track, or Public Right of Way (PROW) including bridleways. A list of the relevant locations is available in our Traffic Management Plan, Section 7: Crossing Points.
The majority of the route has been constructed using ‘open cut’ trench methods. When these works reached a crossing point on the public highway a short-term road closure and diversion was implemented, to enable the works to be undertaken safely, both to the workforce and the general public. Where continued access across the road was required, this was maintained via appropriate traffic management controls and signage.
Update – September 2019
Public Right of Way (PROW)
All East Anglia ONE ducts have been installed along the cable route. During the reinstatement phase some traffic management will be required to enable road resurfacing. The latest details are provided below and are subject to change.
