Ausgrid is planning to retire our City East substation as it is reaching the end of its serviceable life. To maintain a safe and reliable electricity supply to the CBD and surrounding suburbs, the electricity it supplies needs to be transferred to our Belmore Park substation in the southern CBD. This requires the installation of new underground 11,000 volt cables.
The cable route for the new 11,000 volt underground cables will be along sections of Wentworth Avenue, College Street and Macquarie Street in Sydney's CBD. A map of the route can be viewed in the project gallery section on the right.
The project began construction in late December 2018 and is expected take up to 18 months to complete.For more information about the project visit www.ausgrid.com.au/easterncbd.
