The installation works for the underground connection of the ALEGrO project started on 15 January in Raeren, right at the German border. The works are executed in sections of about 1 km in order to limit the impact on mobility and residents.
The company charged with the works under the supervision of Elia is General Cable, explained Els Celens, responsible for the project at Elia. During the month of April, the first five sections were completed in the town of Raeren and the teams started working on the territory of the municipality of Blegny, from where they will gradually continue along the E40 motorway in the direction of Germany. We are very pleased with the way in which the works have progressed so far and hope to continue in the same manner for the next two years.
