JSM were contracted by a UK DNO to carry out the installation of a new underground 66kV cable circuit and associated ducts for Surf Telecom from Feckenham Primary substation to Evesham Primary substation.
The work was required to reinforce the existing 66kV network.
The project was constructed in two stages.
Stage 1 trench construction.
Stage 2 cable installation/cable jointing.
The cable route was 21.2km in length and consists of works in the road, verge and footway through both rural and residential areas of Worcestershire and Warwickshire, including traffic sensitive areas. The ends of the route were terminated within the client’s operational sites. The entire route was ducted and cabled underground. The route involved a tight program due to the number of road restrictions and took careful planning to keep traffic disruption to a minimum.
Before the project started, JSM held an open evening for all residents, local businesses and local community to come and meet us and to discuss the project. We were able to share with them the programme, how and what we were doing to minimise disruption and mitigating any environmental impact.
