Will you plant trees in my back garden to hide the sight of new OHLE masts?
Generally, no new trees would be planted close to Overhead electricity lines. This is both for safety and maintenance reasons. A landscape and visual assessments will be undertaken as part of the design and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. Where the assessments determine that visual screening is required this will be provided within Iarnród Éireann’s lands or lands to be acquired by Iarnród Éireann as part of the Railway Order process.Print
