Footpath Closures : National Grid – Dungeness to Sellindge footpath closures

From the National Grid:

Dungeness to Sellindge overhead line refurbishment — footpath closures in your local area 

I last wrote to you in January, about the overhead line refurbishment project between our substations at Dungeness and Sellindge. At the time I said we would need to close some footpaths during the work and that we would share the details once they were confirmed.

We've now agreed the footpath closures with Kent County Council. I have listed the details of the local closures over the page, together with a map showing where the footpaths are.

You will see that we plan to close each footpath on two separate occasions. We expect each closure to last for around two and a half weeks. All closures will have clear signage so people know the footpaths are not to be used. We will remove the signage in between the two sets of closures.

If we need to change these dates, we will let you know. Any changed closures will take place within a sixmonth period agreed with Kent County Council. This is from 29 March until 27 September 2016.

We need to close the footpaths to ensure people's safety, and we'll work as quickly as we can to minimise the disruption.

Please note the footpath closures outlined in this letter are specific to your local area and there are further closures along the rest of the line.

If you would like further information on the other footpath closures, or have any questions about our work, please contact the project's community relations team on 0800 731 1231 or info@communityrelations.co.uk.
