POWERLINK will be in­spect­ing trans­mis­sion lines and per­form­ing in­su­la­tor wash­ing on its elec­tric­ity net­work across the Far North.

Res­i­dents at Ma­reeba, Spring­mount, Walka­min, Chewko, Kalunga and Her­ber­ton may see he­li­copters mov­ing rel­a­tively quickly and at a low level dur­ing Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber.

Powerlink chief ex­ec­u­tive Mer­ryn York said the ac­tiv­i­ties were an im­por­tant part of en­sur­ing safety and re­li­a­bil­ity of the net­work.
