Proposed works by AusNet to relocate electrical cables

Update on Stage 1A of Jumping Creek Road Upgrade

We’re in the process of finalising the design for stage 1A of the Jumping Creek Road Upgrade. Part of this design includes lowering a road crest* by 1.8 to 2 metres, to improve the line of sight for ascending and descending traffic on this stretch of the road.

The stretch of road to be lowered is located between 373 Ringwood-Warrandyte Road and 292 Jumping Creek Road.

Before construction can begin, electrical cables in the vicinity of the road crest must be relocated and power poles will need to be removed. The power poles will be removed in Stage 1A to eliminate them as roadside hazards and ensure safety requirements are met.

The relocation of the electrical cables will be undertaken by AusNet (as the service authority) on behalf of Manningham Council. The cable works must be completed before civil construction can begin.

We expect that AusNet will be begin relocating cables in the next 6 to 8 weeks.

*a road crest is a point in a road where the road climbs or descends and often impedes on a drivers line of sight.
