The Routeing Strategy

Following a strategic review of technical, economic and environmental constraints, a series of well established step-by-step principles for routeing high voltage overhead transmission lines, 'The Holford Rules', were applied to identify a 'preferred' route and substation location for a 400kV overhead line and substation in East Ayrshire (Part A of the SWS Project).

The Consultation Document

The findings of this routeing study were presented in the Consultation Document, the purpose of which was to provide an opportunity for interested parties to comment on the preferred route and substation location to inform the next stages of the project.
