Road and Public Right of Way closures

The onshore cable route is about 37 km (23 miles) long and sometimes the cable route will cross 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 will be constructed using ‘open cut’ trench methods. When these works reach a crossing point on the public highway a short-term road closure and diversion will be implemented, to enable the works to be undertaken safely, both to the workforce and the general public. Where continued access across the road is required, this will be maintained via appropriate traffic management controls and signage. We apologise for the inconvenience. A full road closure will enable us to complete the work and reopen the road as soon as possible.
