TransGrid is proposing to construct a steel or concrete radio repeater pole, (approximately 45 metres in height) at the existing Buronga substation, located on Arumpo Road, Buronga, NSW. Once installed, communications equipment including two dishes approximately 1.8 metres in diameter and one Yagi antenna around 2 metres in length would be attached to the pole.Figure 1: Locality Map

The project is needed to improve the strength and reliability of electricity supply in the far south-west region of NSW. Specifically, this requires a robust communications connection between Red Cliffs, Buronga and Broken Hill substations.
