Upgrade for Yamba powerline

Essential Energy has carried out upgrade work along the high voltage powerline between Maclean and Yamba. Regional manager North Coast, Brendon Neyland, said the work was necessary to ensure the line was in the best possible condition to allow the switching of power around the high voltage network as work continues on the Pacific Highway upgrade. “Crews from Maclean and Grafton worked together to replace power poles, cross arms and spans of powerline to ensure the network will provide a reliable and safe supply of power to the area,” said Brendon. The upgrade work took place over two days, with cross arms and general maintenance being completed last week, and poles and powerline on Tuesday of this week.
