London Power Tunnels Royal Opening

The London Power Tunnels, Phase 1 officially opened on Wednesday 7th February. The project is part of a seven year rewire needed to meet increasing electricity demand across the UK’s capital. 

National Grid’s £1bn project is creating a new energy superhighway under the city running from Hackney in the east, to Willesden in the West and Kensal Green down to Wimbledon.
