The existing 132kV transmission line between Powerlink's Ingham and Tully substations is more than 50 years old, and required replacement to ensure the continued reliability of high voltage electricity supply to Far North Queensland. As a result, Powerlink constructed a replacement 275/132kV transmission line. The replacement line caters for future growth in electricity demand for the communities of Ingham, Cardwell, Tully and surrounding areas.
Construction of this transmission line is now complete. Please refer to the final community notice under the newsletters and notices section for further information.
