The UK’s first T-pylons

National Grid have started construction on their new overhead line, including the innovative T-pylons. Balfour Beatty is their principal contractor for this work.The pylon’s lower height and contemporary design is considered to have less of an impact on the landscape than traditional lattice pylons, whilst playing a vital role in supporting the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions.

The pylons are part of the 57 km Hinkley Connection project running between Bridgwater and Seabank near Avonmouth. The project is connecting new sources of power to be delivered efficiently, reliably, and safely.
