£3.6 million power upgrade in Peckham

A £3.6 million project to upgrade the electricity network has been completed in Peckham to benefit the local community.

From Press releases - 17 July 2019 12:00 AM

UK Power Networks’ engineers have replaced underground electricity cabling along a 3.7km route in the Peckham area of London. 

The work is part of the company’s £600 million investment in improvements to the network this year to maintain safe and reliable power supplies for local homes, businesses, schools and hospitals.

Jason Taylor, project manager at UK Power Networks, said: “Power supplies are very reliable and we are continuously investing in improvements to the network, like this one in Peckham and Brixton, to ensure it remains resilient for local communities for years to come.

“This particular investment will boost the reliability of electricity supplies for thousands of customers across the Peckham, Brixton, Clapham, Camberwell, Dulwich and Kennington areas.”

The work involved excavating trenches in short stages to lay pipework for electricity cables in the Clayton Road area of Peckham, then pulling through the new cables and connecting them to the network.

UK Power Networks is Britain’s largest electricity distributor. It owns and maintains the electricity networks which deliver power across London, the South East and East of England.
