POWER LINE REPLACEMENTS

PRIVATE POWERLINE REPLACEMENTS

If you have a private powerline on your property, you are legally responsible for its maintenance and safety. Powerlines become the customer’s responsibility at the point at which they are connected to the network. Newcastle Powerlines are able to upgrades to power lines, provide maintenance of cross arms, point of attachments and replacement of wood blocks.

POWER LINE HAZARDS

Private power lines and need to be regularly inspected and properly maintained. If you notice any of these common issues you will need to organise repairs or tree trimming as soon as possible.

 

Damaged crossarms

Over time, crossarms may deteriorate, split or become loose, leaving powerlines at risk of sagging, clashing or falling down.

Damaged fittings

Pole fittings and attachments that are loose, frayed or deteriorating are a serious safety and bushfire risk.

 

Slack wires

Powerlines or wires hanging too low can clash and lead to bushfires. Low wires may also breach the minimum height safety requirements.

Damaged wires

If insulation is missing or damaged, the exposed wire may be live and contact could be fatal. Damaged wires must be replaced.
