Helicopter line inspections

The areas we are inspecting in 2017 are as follows:

Powerline Inspections

  • 27 November - 15 December: Launceston

Tasmania has a large network of powerlines, right across the state. We need to inspect all of it, sometimes slowly and sometimes at low levels.

It can be noisy, but it's also really important.

By undertaking inspections of powerlines, we're aiming to reduce the risk of bushfires and unplanned power outages.

We're working to complete the inspections as quickly as possible, to avoid disruption to residential areas and minimise disturbances to livestock.

Watch our video for more information.

Thank you for your patience while we undertake this important work.

For further information please contact us on 1300 137 008.

Dates and locations may change due to the weather conditions and other unforeseen factors.
