Home / News and Insights / Press / Electricity network commissioner calls for transmission infrastructure build time to be halved

In an article for New Civil Engineer, partner Angus Walker responds to the recently released Winser Report, which calls for a dramatic reduction in build time for the UK’s future electricity transmission infrastructure projects.

Published today, Electricity networks commissioner Nick Winser’s report to the government outlines a series of recommendations for the acceleration of the deployment of green energy power lines, substations and pylons.

Angus Walker comments:

‘…successive proposals to hasten building have run into opposition from residents, local government, and MPs; how much of these proposals are actually implemented remains to be seen.

The problem of local objections to new infrastructure, however necessary it is or unreasonable those objections may be, has been a persistent problem for the public and private sector. Paying local residents per pylon that they can see may finally resolve this.’
