RESIDENTS and traders will find out how the multimillion pound project to upgrade the electricity networks will pan out.

Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) will hold two community engagement meetings on March 29 and April 2 to talk about its project between Ascot and Chobham.

At a cost of £7.4 million, the project aims to support a better power supply in the area through the undergrounding of sections of cables.

The works will also refurbish the primary substation at the Military Vehicles and Engineering establishment site, providing power to 10,000 customers.

Anthony Horne, project manager at SSEN, said: "This programme of works, which started last month, will run until March 2020 and we want to make sure that everyone who lives and works in the area is aware of any sections of the project that might have an impact on them.

"Our aim is always to minimise disruption, while maximising the safety of our collegeues and our customers who may be in the vicinity of this project.

"These engagement events give us the opportunity to meet the local community to talk through the works in details and enable those attending to raise any questions they may have."

The community engagement events will take place in All Souls Church Hall from 12pm and 7pm on March 29 and at St Johns Church, Windlesham between 12pm and 7pm April 2.

Letters will also be posted through residents doors to update them on the phases of the project, as well as updates to traffic management systems.
