Work in Maldersesteenweg brought forward
In March 2019, Elia started the first stage (Malderen – J1A cable section) of the project to lay a new underground connection from the Malderen high-voltage substation. Since this first stage is going smoothly and is ahead of schedule, Elia has decided to start the second stage in Maldersesteenweg (J1A – J2A cable section) earlier than planned. This work was not supposed to begin until the end of April 2019.
Simultaneous road surface removal work
This means that Elia can carry out road surface removal work in Maldersesteenweg for both cable sections at the same time, minimising disruption. After pulling the underground cable for the first stage (Malderen – J1A cable section), Elia will immediately start building an open trench for the second stage (J1A – J2A cable section).
The schedule currently remains unchanged for all other cable sections.
