Leichhardt substation project

Ausgrid is redeveloping the Leichhardt electricity substation located at 133 Balmain Road as part of our plans to continue providing a secure and reliable electricity supply to Leichhardt and surrounding suburbs.

The project is required to replace existing equipment that is approaching retirement and will involve constructing a new architecturally designed building to complement the local area.

Construction of the building is complete with installation and connection of new electrical equipment in progress. The substation is expected to supplying power to the community in 2016.
