Power goes down

A $4.7 million project to underground power lines to Rossmoyne residences will commence early in 2000.

As part of round one of the WA Government’s ongoing underground power program, around 1,180 properties will be connected to underground power.

Energy Minister Colin Barnett said the City of Canning was one of seven councils successful in a bid to participate in the first round of the program.

The completion of the Rossmoyne program in June 2000 will be the culmination of $31 million spent by the government, Western Power and local councils to connect 9,000 customers to underground power.

Mr Barnett said, being near the Canning River, power lines in Ross-moyne were more susceptible to wind damage and the area also suffered from a high number of power blackouts.

In the ongoing program, local councils will share fifty per cent of the costs, with the State Government and West-ern Power contributing the remainder.
