Advance information on improvements to the electricity network

Throughout March 2023 SP Energy Networks will be working to upgrade the electricity network in your area. The existing substation and underground cables that supply electricity to your community are approaching the end of their operational life.

  • We will not require access to any properties however we may be working adjacent to your premises.We plan to replace the local high voltage substation and some of the existing underground cables. We will be working only on Whistleberry Road.
  • We will be working on the footpaths and roadways with minimal pedestrian disruption. Traffic restriction orders will be in place to restrict the flow of vehicles in the area for the duration of the works.

This work will:

  • Reduce the number of power cuts experience
  • Increase capacity for anticipated EV vehicle chargers


What to expect:
