Cable work disruption

Work is now under way in the area on a major £9m initiative to improve electricity supplies to the south of Coventry.

It involves upgrading equipment in major substations and laying 6km of 132,000 volt cable between Hearsall Common and Whitley, which will help to safeguard supply to around 33,000 customers and allow for future increases in demand.

Work started in Earlsdon Avenue North on 27 January and is due for completion on 14 March and work in Spencer Avenue/Road began on the same day and continues until 21 February.

As well as residents and drivers being affected in these roads, there will also be disruption to bus passengers with stops being temporarily closed over the coming months on routes 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 6A, 11, 12, 18, 18A, 19, 21 and 27.
