TransGrid will soon begin work at the Wagga Wagga substation upgrading facilities and assets which provide a safe, reliable and efficient supply of electricity to the region.
Work is expected to commence in July 2016 and be completed by November 2018.
The work will include a range of construction and replacement activities including the removal of old equipment, digging trenches, laying foundations and installing new equipment.
TransGrid's Community Engagement Manager, Paul Johnson said, "This project is the latest investment in the Wagga Wagga area where TransGrid is a major employer. The program will take around 30 months to complete and we will be providing regular updates as the work progresses."
Recently, TransGrid undertook its 'Community Partnership Program' in Wagga Wagga, a program which to date has provided over $300,000 in community grants across NSW.
"We are delighted to be partnered with a range of local organisations which promote public safety, wellbeing, health, education or the environment in Wagga Wagga", said Mr Johnson.
Organisations that have received assistance include:
> Country Hope Trust
> Wagga Wagga High School
> Petaurus Education Working Group Inc.
> Eunony Bush Fire Brigade
> Lake Albert Bush Fire Brigade
