Ausgrid has constructed a new zone substation to serve homes and businesses in Broadmeadow and surrounding areas.
The new substation has been developed on a site at the corner of Denny and Jackson Streets, Broadmeadow, in the sporting precinct adjacent to the Newcastle Harness Racing Club's access road.
The new substation is required to provide additional capacity to meet the growing electricity requirements of homes and businesses in the Broadmeadow area.
Work is underway to connect the new substation to the existing electricity network supplying homes and businesses. Once the new substation is fully commissioned, the existing substation, located on Broadmeadow Road in Georgetown (adjacent to the entrance of United Group Rail) will be retired.
