ESB tpo finalise design of Tarbert to Tralee power line

E.S.B will begin a site survey in the coming weeks to finalise the design of the new power line from Tarbert to Tralee. Construction is set to begin next year and will be finished by the end of 2005. ESB will re-visit all landowners on the route of the line at the end of the month to confirm what’s in the planning decision. Ahead of the permission, public meetings took place and a number of objections was submitted.ESB say they’re committed to a positive relationship with landowners and that has been their experience in the past. They’re also aiming to minimise disruption while the work is underway. The 110 k v line is needed to reinforce the network in the county and increase capacity. Since 2001, there has been a risk of outages if there had been a fault while another line was down.
