HC Deb 02 April 1968 vol 762 c59W
Mr. Awdry

asked the Minister of Power, if he will give the cost per mile of erecting across open country single-circuit 33 kilovolt electricity lines and double-circuit 33 kilovolt electricity lines, respectively.

Mr. Freeson

Depending on the load which the lines are designed to carry, the cost of 33 kilovolt overhead line single circuit is between £3,000 and £4,000 per mile and of double circuit approximately twice as much.
