Power cuts could soon be a thing of the past in Grimsargh as a major upgrade gets underway.


Electricity North West says it is spending £24,000 to upgrade the supply to the village.

The substation in Ribblesdale Drive is to have equipment replaced which dates from 1968.

Work is going to take four days from Monday and customers are being advised of some disruption to their supply.

David Kenneford, plant project manager for Electricity North West, said: “Our engineers will be working in the area to replace ageing electricity equipment which has served the area well for the last 50 years.

“We’ll be providing generators to make sure that residents won’t suffer any disruption to their power supply, but unfortunately they can be a little noisy and take up some room. We’ll do the work as quickly as we can to minimise disruption and restore the mains supply as soon as possible.

“We hope local customers understand the need for this essential project and we would like to thank them in advance for their cooperation.”

If anyone living in the area has any queries about the project, they are advised to call Electricity North West on 0800 195 4141 or follow us @ElectricityNW.
