Overview

Powerlink is currently undertaking a project to refit the existing 110kV Rocklea to Sumner transmission line. This line is an essential component of the electricity transmission network supplying the Brisbane metropolitan area.

The line has been in service since 1963 and requires refitting to ensure a continued safe, reliable and cost-effective power supply to our community.

The project involves refitting 16 towers along the 5.5km line. Specific activities will vary at each tower site, based on its condition, and may include: 

  • further condition assessment
  • replacing overhead earth wires
  • checking and replacing any corroded nuts, bolts and steelwork 
  • restoring and/or upgrading access tracks

All activities will be undertaken in accordance with our Land Access Protocol (LAP). Project works will also comply with rigorous environmental management requirements.

Status

Inspection, condition assessment and case-by-case on-ground works are expected to commence early 2023.

We will continue to work closely with landholders and other stakeholders within the project footprint to keep them informed of our activities and minimise any potential impacts.
