Find out more about the project
Ausgrid is planning to replace about one kilometre of 132,000 volt (132kV) underground cables between McEvoy Street, Alexandria to Wellington Street, Waterloo. The existing cables of the same voltage are ready to be retired so we can maintain a safe and reliable electricity supply in the future. The project is also part of a program with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to replace fluid filled cables across our network.
New cables have now been laid with connection to the network planned shortly. We thank the community for their patience and cooperation throughout the construction work.
