Last chance to talk to EirGrid staff 30th Tues 15th Nov (tomorrow) between 2pm & 5pm before the consultation period closes Nov 30th.

Read all about this project at https://consult.eirgrid.ie/consultation/east-meath-north-dublin-grid-upgrade-step-4-consultation– but in summary ..

The East Meath-North Dublin Grid Upgrade will add a high-capacity 400 kV (kilovolt) underground cable electricity connection from Woodland substation near Batterstown in County Meath to Belcamp substation near Clonshaugh in north Dublin. This upgrade will strengthen the electricity network in the east of Meath and the north of Dublin to improve the transfer of power across the existing transmission network

There are 4 proposed routes for this underground pipeline ….

  • Options A, C and D go by St Margarets GAA club
  • Option B goes down the Broughan Lane and pass Newtown Cottages
  • Options C and D go down Killeek Lane

If you want to have a say why this shouldn’t be going through your area or if you just want to understand what this is about – please attend tomorrow evening.
