Electrical works to fix a fault near two local schools are causing significant disruption near Legoland.

Workers began unscheduled works on Winkfield Road yesterday (May 30), with locals not receiving any warning as traffic lights were put in place.

It has now been confirmed that the works are being done by Scottish and Southern Power Destruction and are set to be completed on June 6.

A spokesperson for Scottish and Southern Energy Network said: “Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is carrying out essential repairs to the high voltage network on Winkfield Road in relation to a fault which has affected Clarence Road Primary Substation.

“As the location of the fault is on the grass verge of a 40mph road, temporary traffic management has been put in place as a safety measure to protect both engineers and road users while these repairs are carried out.

“These urgent repairs are vital to ensure security and resilience of supply and are being carried out while nearby schools are on holiday to minimise disruption to pupils. The works will be completed ahead of the weekend and SSEN apologises for any inconvenience these essential works may have caused.”

The works, which are situated on the stretch of Winkfield Road when you turn left out of Legoland, are causing tailbacks in the area.

Windsor Boy’s and Girl’s Schools are situated near the works, which will continue the electrical works through the half term.
