GS6 Overhead Height Requests

Planning work near Overhead Lines?

We can now help obtain overhead electric cable heights (GS6 guidance) from the relevant utility company for £23.50 per crossing. If the utility company is able to provide us with clearance heights and any other safety information, we will provide a report detailing this. If a site visit is required by one of their engineers, we will facilitate this by sharing contact details with relevant personnel.

PLEASE NOTE there is a legal requirement that work should only be carried out near to live overhead lines when there is no alternative and when risks are acceptable and can be properly controlled. A precautionary approach should always be taken along with consultation with the owner of the line.

PLEASE CONSULT the full GS6 Guidance notes at https://www.cornerstoneprojects.co.uk/gs6-guidance/ before working near overhead lines.
