Notification of works

Bergmann Drive and Thevenard Road, Thevenard 

February – July 2024

What we’re doing 

The Thevenard high voltage supply line was constructed in the 1970s. It is susceptible to coastal corrosion and the area is at increasing risk of age-related power outages. 
We will be replacing the aging powerlines and any poles or overhead equipment along Bergmann Drive and Thevenard Road to deliver improved power reliability.

How this affects you

Civil works will commence 12 February and are expected to finish by the end of March. This work involves the installation of new stobie pole foundations underneath existing powerlines. There will be no power outages during this stage of the work. 

Overhead powerline work and stobie pole installations are scheduled to begin in April and will be completed by the end of July. This work will start near the school during the April school holidays to minimise inconvenience. 

The majority of work will take place during daylight hours, with the possibility of some work on weekends. We will notify you in advance of any changes that may result in night works. 

There will be an impact on parking during construction and access to driveways in the working areas may be temporarily blocked. Our team will let you know if this impacts your property, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in moving vehicles if necessary.   

All work will be conducted in public areas, so access to properties will not be required. 

For everyone’s safety, we will have traffic restrictions and appropriate traffic management in place.
