During the installation phase we will be working in parts of the highways network to install our underground pipes. We recognise any roadworks can be unwelcome so we’re working closely with the Devon County Council Highways team to identify the best routes to minimise disruption. Once we have agreed the route we’ll publish details of any works well in advance and we will be engaging with local residents and businesses to make sure they understand potential impacts and alternative routes.

Once the network is installed someone walking or driving through the city won’t even notice it, and it will go on serving the city with low carbon heat for many years to come.
