TasNetworks is currently experiencing very high volumes of applications for negotiated connections and this is impacting on our ability to process the designs for these jobs within our usual six week timeframe.
At this time, based on current and forecast design workload, we would like to advise customers that we are extending the design completion time from six (6) weeks to ten (10) weeks to ensure we are able to provide certainty to customers and developers regarding realistic timeframes for completion of designs at this point in time.
We are currently working on a number of strategies to improve this situation and will continue to provide updates regarding design completion timeframes on our website as the situation changes.
TasNetworks thanks you for your understanding as we work through this issue.
