Crews work on power supply works
ESSENTIAL Energy is carrying out work in Friday Hut Road to increase the reliability of power supply for its customers in Bangalow, Byron and surrounding areas.
The work involves Essential Energy crews creating a tie between two powerlines that feed power into the area.
Once completed, the tie will allow the company to feed power across the two powerlines, minimising unplanned supply interruption times for customers.
The tie is currently being installed underground in front of Pacific Plantations along Friday Hut Road.
This work is part of Essential Energy's seven year, $70 million upgrade of the electricity network in the Ballina Shire, Byron Shire and Lismore City local government areas.
