Power ou­tage to work on line

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

ABOUT 90 Er­gon staff from Bund­aberg, Fraser Coast, South Bur­nett, Toowoomba, Biloela, Monto, Dalby and Chin­chilla will help Gayn­dah and Mun­dub­bera crews carry out flood­proof­ing work on pow­er­lines.

A key river cross­ing on Er­gon En­ergy’s main 66,000-volt pow­er­line be­tween the Gayn­dah and Mun­dub­bera sub­sta­tions will be flood-proofed on Sun­day as part of a ma­jor pro­gram of works.

Fraser/Bur­nett lines man­ager Craig Har­ris said new taller con­crete poles and con­duc­tors would re­place the ex­ist­ing struc­ture, about 2km south of Mun­dub­bera.

“This work will pro­vide safe clear­ance from any fore­see­able fu­ture floods and pro­vide on­go­ing re­li­a­bil­ity of sup­ply for cus­tomers in the North Bur­nett,” Mr Har­ris said.

Mr Har­ris said most of the con­struc­tion work for the new cross­ing had been com­pleted, but a power sup­ply in­ter­rup­tion was re­quired from 9am–3pm on Sun­day so crews could safely con­nect, test and en­er­gise the new sec­tion.

Gen­er­a­tors will main­tain sup­ply to some of the town ar­eas of Mun­dub­bera and Eidsvold. Af­fected res­i­dents have been no­ti­fied by mail.
