Underground Power Project in Mosman Park

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

For the past two decades, the Town of Mosman Park has been dedicated to replacing overhead powerlines with underground infrastructure in collaboration with the State Government and Western Power.

Underground power brings a raft of sustainable benefits, such as safer and more reliable power supply, visually appealing streetscapes and enhanced property values.

In 2002-2003, the Town successfully implemented underground power to around half of Mosman Park through Western Power's State Underground Power Program.

However, the complexity and cost of underground power (and serious challenges in securing funding) have left the remainder of Mosman Park still without this infrastructure upgrade.

Undergrounding power in Mosman Park is complicated and prohibitively expensive.

In acknowledgement of the strong community support for underground power, however, Council and Administration have continued to push forward over the years; investing significant time and effort into exploring alternative funding models and options to complete underground power in Mosman Park.

Western Power has advised that the planned installation date for underground power in the Town of Mosman Park is between 2032 and 2037 through the Targeted Underground Power Program (TUPP). However, there is now an opportunity to expedite the project through Western Power's Retrospective Undergrounding Power (RUP) Project.

Read on for the latest update, what actions we've taken so far, and our next steps.
