London power tunnels

Re-wiring London and connecting with the capital

This project is the second phase of the scheme to rewire the Capital, called London Power Tunnels. It follows the success of the first phase, which was a seven-year, £1 billion programme, building 32km of tunnels and two new substations in North London.

The second phase is essential in order to replace existing electricity cables in South London which are coming towards the end of their useful life, the majority of which are buried beneath the road network.

The talk will provide an overview of the London Power Tunnels 2 programme including why the project is needed, progress so far, some of the engineering challenges and a look at the Project 13 delivery model.
