Location: Great Alpine Road, Dinner Plain
Timeframe: Late January – May 2024
We’re installing a new 22kV underground cable beneath the Great Alpine Road in Dinner Plain.
The new cable is being installed to ensure that residents and businesses in the area can have access to reliable electricity.
Power supply to the area should not be interrupted, however we’ll let you know in advance if this happens.
Where is this upgrade happening?
The new cable will be installed by boring under the Great Alpine Road starting at the JB Plain Hut Campground and ending at Roney Macs Twist in Dinner Plain. This route has been carefully chosen to minimise impacts on the environment and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage.
When is this work happening?
Construction work will begin at the end of January and be completed by the end of May 2024. Our crews will be working onsite from 7am to 7pm on weekdays and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays. Work outside of these hours may be necessary to complete the work before winter.
So that our crews can work safely, one lane will be closed along the Great Alpine Road. We’ll have traffic management and portable traffic lights in place to help guide vehicles through the area
Impact to hiking and mountain biking trails
We will be conducting works near the JB Plain Hut campground and carpark. Please approach with caution, our crews will help guide you safely through the area.
