T Route Rebuild Project – Feedback from Consultation event of July/August 2022
Feedback from consultees following the original consultation on this project has been reviewed, with subsequent amendments now included as part of the proposed route. These amendments are summarised as follows:
Change to the point of connection at AK Route, north of Annan.
To avoid felling a number of mature, broadleaf trees located along the disused railway line north of Annan, the proposed route has been amended to now run from tower AK05, rather than tower AK08. The route now runs parallel to the east side of the railway for a distance of approximately 500m before turning southeast then east and re-joining the original preferred route north of the B6357. One additional tower is required to transition from tower AK05 to the new wood pole overhead line.
Working with landowners, further, smaller refinements will be made to follow field boundaries where possible, provided this is in accordance with SPEN’s Approach to Routeing Overhead Lines guidance.
