North west of York

Looking at the location of the proposed infrastructure to the north west of York, there are a number of different infrastructure types to consider, including:
  • two 400kV cable sealing end compounds
  • a new 400kV overhead line
  • a new 275kV substation (currently known as the York North substation)
  • sections of new 275kV overhead line (for which there are two different options for feedback) and partial removal of the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston (XCP) overhead line.

275kV overhead lines

For the alignment of the new 275kV lines (identified by the orange areas in Figures 7 and 8) between the proposed new York North substation and the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston (XC/XCP) overhead line, two options have been developed:

Option 1 – see Figure 7

1. A new 275kV overhead line (identified by the orange area in the option 1 map which you can see and learn more about here) from the proposed York North substation siting area, routeing towards the eastern extent of Overton Wood and towards the south-west, crossing the River Ouse, connecting into the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston overhead line (XC/XCP).

AND

2. In addition, a new 275kV overhead line (identified by the orange area in the option 1 map) from the proposed York North substation siting area, routeing in a southerly direction, parallel with the East Coast Mainline railway line (not crossing), connecting into the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston overhead line (XC/XCP).

















Option 2 – see Figure 8

1. A new 275kV overhead line (identified by the orange area in the option 2 map which you can see and learn more about here) from the proposed York North substation siting area, crossing perpendicular to the railway line, then turning sharply in a southerly direction, parallel with the railway line (not crossing), before connecting into the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston overhead line (XC/XCP).

AND

2. In addition, a new 275kV overhead line (identified by the orange area in the option 2 map) from the proposed York North substation siting area, routeing in a southerly direction, parallel with the railway line (not crossing), connecting into the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston overhead line (XC/XCP).

11. Looking at the extent of the preferred route corridor for the north west of York, do you support the rationale behind the potential alignment of the two proposed 275kV overhead lines for option 1 (Figure 7), as defined by the orange area?
