Line crews are working on power lines near Albury to keep in good stable condition to resist winter conditions.
During a six day maintenance program line mechanics are servicing power lines in the rural area East of Albury. Three pole crews are replacing old hardwood poles with new Busck prestressed concrete power poles. A wiring crew is fixing and maintaining wires on the 12km long line from the Albury zone substation to the end of the line near Mt Nessing. To complete the work within the given time frame NETcon’s crew is supported by three fellow line mechanics from Electronet in Greymouth.
