A new 11kV mains ring for the area is being installed in association with Southern Electric, which will involve a new series of cables underneath the M4, linking into the substation in Reading and delivering a more robust power supply. This will link into the new and existing residential areas, creating a better quality and more reliable connection.

The new cables are currently being installed and are scheduled for completion in December 2015. The work will involve starting at the substation close to the new Tesco depot across the M4 in Reading, along the A33, Whitley Wood Road and across the M4 into Church Lane and including works on Croft Rd, Deardon Way and School Green as it heads to Spencers Wood and Shinfield.
