The conductor and
structures of 97K are about 60 years old. We need to remediate this line
as low spans can pose a safety and reliability issue.
We are beginning early planning works for remediation and possible replacement works along the existing Cooma-Munyang transmission line. We will also be looking at the possibility of raising the height of some sections of the existing line.
TransGrid's scope of the work includes:
We are still finalising our work for the planning process and site access requirements for this project.
It is anticipated that site mobilisation will begin mid 2016 with the project to be completed by December 2017.
