Nalcor says after nearly three years of construction, the Labrador-Island Transmission Link right-of-way is complete.
The work involved the clearing of land and construction access roads from Muskrat Falls across to the Straits, down the Northern Peninsula and across the island to Soldier’s Pond.
Clearing of the land to make way for the 1,100 km transmission line began in Labrador in June of 2014, with the first tree cut on the island in December of 2015.
To date, all 1,282 transmission towers have been erected in Labrador with 65 per cent of conductor stringing complete on the Labrador portion of the link. On the island, 30 percent of towers have been erected and stringing operations are starting to ramp up.
