Webinar: The landscape restored: Planning for pylon removal

Join us on Thursday 30 June 1pm

Following two and half years of going underground and all the complex engineering and construction that involved, National Grid is now gearing up to do what it originally set out to do and transform the landscape for good by permanently removing the stretch of 22 pylons which form the Dorset Visual Impact Provision (VIP) project just outside Dorchester.

In anticipation for the moment when the pylons themselves are dismantled, National Grid has organised a free webinar to talk people through the incredible work that has happened on site to date – from the vast array of archaeological finds and the ongoing challenge of the British weather to the complex engineering of the steep slopes.  We will also give you a preview of what is due to happen around the pylons coming down.

Register here to attend the webinar on Thursday 30 June from 1pm until 2pm.

Paul Hamnett, National Grid’s senior project management for Dorset VIP said: “From the pioneering engineering techniques, to the national significance of the archaeology, the complexity of this project has made it one of the most exciting I’ve ever worked on anywhere in the world. I’d like to thank the local community and our stakeholders for your support and patience.

“The pylons coming down is the culmination of many years of hard work that stretch way back before we started on site, and I believe I speak for many of us when I say that it will be incredible to see this final step and the transformed landscape it leaves behind.”
