Major upgrades to electricity supplies in Colne have been announced by Electricity North West.
The company is planning to improve the service to more than 3,000 homes and businesses, the Lancashire Telegraph reports.
An eight-week engineering programme will see roads closed in the town as additional cables are laid to help manage larger quantities of electricity.
The new cables will also help make the network faster, more reliable and easier to repair.
Regional manager at Electricity North West Lee Maxwell commented: "These works are an important step in future-proofing the region’s electricity network.
"Demand is increasing all the time, which places new pressures on the local infrastructure."
The project is part of a rolling investment programme being carried out across Lancashire to improve the local infrastructure.
