What we are doing
SA Power Networks is working in partnership with Adelaide Plains Council to underground powerlines along a section of the main street as part of the exciting Village Green project to enhance this vibrant community. Construction includes undergrounding existing overhead powerlines, removal of the existing Stobie poles and the installation of new LED street lighting.
How this affects you
The work will take place:
- Between 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday
- From Monday 17 July to Wednesday 31 July 2024
To ensure the safety of our workers and the community, traffic safety management measures will be implemented along Old Port Wakefield Road. We will maintain access to businesses using road plates and stop/go traffic management. Speed restrictions and parking limitations will also be in effect in the vicinity of the works.
There may be intermittent restrictions on driveway access throughout. Our crews and traffic management team will work closely with those affected to minimise any inconvenience.
Some private electricity connections may need to be altered as part of the project. There is no cost to customers for this work, and we will let you know in advance if this affects you and your property.
Work hours and dates may vary due to weather conditions or unforeseen events outside of our control.
