Energy supplies near Potters Bar set to be improved

OVERHEAD cables and pylons are set to be refurbished in South Mimms, as part of a project to reinforce electricity supplies to consumers in the area.

The work will form part of a �4million scheme which was unveiled by gas and electricity suppliers EDF Energy this week.

A total of 17km of overhead lines between Brimsdown, in Enfield, and South Mimms will be upgraded over the next few months.

The pylons which support these cables will also be re-painted.

Project manager Chris Ling said: “It is our priority to make sure that we provide a reliable electricity supply for our customers and this means regularly investing in our networks.
