HS2 works to reroute power line in Colne Valley
HS2 works to reroute power line in Colne Valley
HS2 will cross the Colne Valley on a long viaduct. The power line in the photo is too low to cross the viaduct, so it is being rerouted. The pylon nearest the camera will remain; it is shown as no 49 on a National Grid map of "Colne Valley overhead line works". The next two in line, and one visible beyond the nearest, will be removed. A new pylon will be built between the first two, the power lines will then go across the canal, across the gravel pits, across the Chiltern Main Line, across HS2, and rejoin the existing power line between South Harefield and Highway Farm. The work in the photo is preparing an access track over the soft ground. The Colne River is just to the left of the photo, the Grand Union Canal just to the right.
