Ausgrid’s Bushfire Hazard Inspections of private poles and high voltage powerlines set to commence

23 April 2020

In preparation for the start of the 2020 bushfire season in September, Ausgrid is starting the important bushfire hazard inspection program this month. Recent months have shown us how dangerous bushfires can be and Ausgrid is committed to ensuring we do as much as we can to prevent bushfires. 

As part of this program, Ausgrid’s ground crews and contractors will be inspecting >42,000 private privately-owned poles on properties that fall within ‘bushfire prone’ areas across the Hunter, Central Coast, Port Stephens, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Sydney.

As part of Ausgrid’s Bushfire Hazard inspection program, specialist crews will also be inspecting Ausgrid’s own network, including high-voltage powerlines.

For more information on this program, please review Council’s Public Notice.
