Powerlink is scheduled to undertake 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 upcoming works are essential to the ongoing safe, reliable and cost effective supply of electricity to Far North Queensland. Project works involve evaluating transmission tower condition and targeted maintenance along this line.


Inspection and visual assessment work was completed in late 2018. On-ground maintenance activities are expected to commence mid 2019 following the wet season. Work will not result in any planned outages to you electricity supply.

It is anticipated works will be completed late 2019 (weather dependent). Powerlink will work closely with landholders within the project footprint to keep them informed of our activities.
