The electricity distribution network in the Mile Oak area, which helps to serve Lewes, has undergone a £750,000 upgrade.

UK Power Networks, which owns, runs and maintains the network in the South-East, as well as the East of England and London, has been taking on the complex and lengthy repair of equipment forming part of the 132,000-volt network at a site in Mile Oak Road.

Testing of the repaired network has recently taken place and the system is now ready again to serve customers in East Sussex.

Barry Hatton, director of asset management at UK Power Networks, said: “This essential project represents a major investment in maintaining and improving the energy infrastructure in the Mile Oak and general Brighton area for the foreseeable future.

“UK Power Networks is determined to provide a reliable supply of electricity and this project is part of our commitment.”

There was no interruption to electricity supplies while the major project was undertaken.

UK Power Networks is constantly working to improve the performance of its network and to meet future needs for power. Since it was formed in 2010, UK Power Networks has invested more than £500 million a year in its networks.
