Powerlink is currently undertaking maintenance inspections on the existing 132kV Egans Hill to Rockhampton transmission line.
The line has been in service for more than 50 years and regular inspection work is an essential part of Powerlink’s ongoing maintenance program. The work includes evaluating the condition of transmission towers to determine any maintenance which may be required to ensure the continued safe and reliable supply of electricity to Central Queensland.
All activities will be undertaken in accordance with agreed property entry conditions and Powerlink’s Land Access Protocol. Project works will also comply with rigorous environmental management requirements.
Inspection and visual assessment work is expected to be completed during February and March 2019, weather dependent. These activities will not result in any planned outages to power supply.
Powerlink will work closely with landholders within the project footprint to keep them informed of our activities as the project progresses.
