New style electricity pylons to be introduced

New T-shaped electricity pylons to be rolled out in England and Wales and will form part of a 35 mile route in Somerset that will carry low-carbon electricity. 

The new design, the first since 1927, has been introduced with an aim to reduce the visual impact across the landscape. 

The cables are strung below a cross-arm on top of a single pole and are 35m, shorter than the traditional high voltage pylons. 

The new style electricity pylon design is by Danish company Bystrup.
