The 132kV Yass to Wagga Line Upgrade project was to replace the existing wooden H 132kV structures with new concrete monopole structures, replace the old 115km Banana conductor with a new Lemon conductor.
The activities for the project were to demolish and rebuild the existing power line, to the new standards. To do this we needed to assess the access routes and roads to each structure location, building roads and pads to facilitate the upgrade works. It included stakeholder engagement and liaising with landowners to access their properties.
The terrain from Yass to Wagga Wagga is mountainous and the route included ranges that had to be crossed. This meant building pads and accessing site with large construction plant was difficult at certain locations.
