CitiPower is installing a distribution substation to support a new commercial development located in Swan Street. The project will also create better reliability and more capacity in the growing local network.

Project Outcomes

The Richmond network supply project is building more capacity in the electricity network to provide an additional connection to support a new commercial development located in Swan Street.

Crews will conduct work to construct and energise a new distribution substation. The upgrade will also strengthen the network for homes and businesses in the local area, further improving reliability for customers.

The Project

Works are scheduled to be completed between March 2023 and September 2023.

Construction activities will take place across various areas throughout Richmond on Swan Street, Church Street, Lesney Street, Shannock Street & Madden Grove.

Construction activities will be staged to minimise disruptions where possible.

What to expect during works

  • Underground cable works will require digging of parts of the road and nature strip.
  • There may be times where we are required to interrupt driveway access to adjacent properties while we complete works. We will work directly with any of the affected customers.
  • Traffic controllers and signage will be in place to help motorists, pedestrians and cyclists remain safe in changed road conditions.
  • On completion of these works, any disturbed areas will be reinstated.
  • The majority of works will be conducted during the day however some night works may be required.
