Trench outside Smithy Cottage

Thursday, 23 May, 2013 - 12:30

Postlethwaite's team are excavating a trench outside Smithy Cottage. This is for a duct to contain the last section of the diverted electricity cable. The trench work will be completed but the connection work at either end will be finalised on 30 May by Electricity North West. Fortunately there is minimal disruption to the road because of this work. The trench itself is quite a complicated job because of the other underground services there, including the stream from Jacky Garth which runs under the road in a big pipe. This is the last part of a major rerouting of the village electricity supply from the sub station in the car park which has been a significant feature of the initial work period.
