Rathmines substation project

Construction of a new zone substation at Rathmines is nearing completion. Located near the intersection of Wangi Road and Wilton Road, Rathmines, the new substation will provide additional capacity to meet the growing electricity requirements of homes and businesses in the west Lake Macquarie area, as well as securing supply for that area.

The new Rathmines substation will initially supply about 5000 homes and businesses in suburbs including Arcadia Vale, Wangi Wangi, Fishing Point, Rathmines, Kilaben Bay, Carey Bay and parts of Toronto.

The new substation is scheduled for commissioning in March 2013.
