Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

Pegs Creek, Roe­bourne and the Kar­ratha CBD will be the next ar­eas in Kar­ratha to be con­nected to the Pil­bara Un­der­ground Power Pro­ject.

Work has al­ready be­gun in the CBD and on over­head ar­eas in Roe­bourne, and is ex­pected to start in Pegs Creek this month.

PUPP pro­ject di­rec­tor James Car­ney said the pro­ject had come a long way since it be­gan in Novem­ber, 2014.

“There is plenty more ac­tiv­ity hap­pen­ing in Kar­ratha and Roe­bourne over the com­ing year to en­sure we can de­liver PUPP on sched­ule,” he said.

Some 253 prop­er­ties were con­nected to the un­der­ground net­work last year, 338 street­lights were in­stalled and 62km of ca­ble were laid.

Bul­garra and the light in­dus­trial area are on sched­ule for full com­ple­tion by the middle of the year, with the town to “ex­pe­ri­ence the ben­e­fits” this cy­clone sea­son.
