Powerlink is undertaking specialised maintenance work on the existing 132kV line from Barron Gorge to Kamerunga.

The line has been in service for more than 50 years and these works are essential to the ongoing safe, reliable and cost effective supply of electricity to Far North Queensland. Project works involve delivering targeted maintenance along this line.


Inspection and visual assessment work was completed in late 2018. On-ground maintenance activities are underway and expected to be completed in December 2019, weather permitting. Work will not result in any planned outages to your electricity supply.

Powerlink will work closely with landholders and other stakeholders within the project footprint to keep them informed of our activities.
