About this projectThe application is for gas pipeline approximately 27km in length, buried for its entire length, with an above ground installation at the start point. The proposed pipeline will start near Yoxall in Staffordshire, where a connection will be made into the national transmission system, and the pipeline will terminate at a block valve within the site of the new Willington C Power Station in Derbyshire.
The construction of the pipeline will be carried out within a temporary construction corridor, nominally 30m in width, but widening where additional working area is required. Three temporary construction compounds are required. One permanent access is required at the above ground installation.
