Pudding Mill Lane Substation

We’re building a new electricity substation at our site in Pudding Mill Lane.

We play an integral role in directly connecting the UK’s rail network to the national electricity network. We’re building this new electricity substation to support the delivery of Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project.

We’re committed to keeping you informed about our work at Pudding Mill Lane and will keep you updated with our plans throughout this project. Our project is scheduled to be fully completed by Autumn 2017.

Floating walkway to be removed

Our cabling work underneath the River Lea towpath, just up from Bow Roundabout is nearing completion.

This means that from 31 August 2017, you will be able to walk along the towpath without having to use the floating walkway that’s currently in place.

We’d like to thank everyone for their patience whilst we’ve carried out this essential work along the towpath.

Next steps

Once we’ve completed the upgrade to cables below the towpath we’ll need to carry out further work to connect Crossrail to our electricity network. We don’t anticipate this will have any impact on the towpath, however you may notice some activity on our site at Cook’s Road until our work is completed in Autumn 2017.
