The planning of Germany's power highways is making progress. The Federal Network Agency has defined the first section of a route corridor for the "SuedOstLink," the Bonn-based regulatory authority announced on Wednesday. The underground lines are to be laid along 83 kilometers from Eisenberg, in the state of Thuringia, to the border triangle of Bavaria, Saxony and Thuringia.

The start and finish points of this section were already known before, now the route has also been decided. The transmission system operators will decide where exactly the underground cables will be laid in the one-kilometer-wide corridor in a next step.

The “SuedOstLink" will run from a transformer station in Wolmirstedt in Saxony-Anhalt to Isar in Bavaria, and the total length of the power link will be more than 500 kilometers. The mammoth project is scheduled to go into operation in 2025.

Another power highway with underground cables is the "SuedLink" which will connect Schleswig-Holstein and Baden-Württemberg, but no concrete section has been defined here yet. The power highways are necessary to bring green electricity from the windy north to the industrial centers of southern Germany. They are sometimes met with harsh criticism from local residents.
