Littlebrook Substation

Over at Littlebrook, between the Dartford Bridge and the Bluewater shopping centre, P+L has been busy installing new electrical equipment as part of an ongoing upgrade to the railway infrastructure.

Following the recent heavy rain, access to the site became difficult, so a temporary roadway was laid out for the delivery of plant and materials.
