Topic: Cable Replacement Works in Kampong Area

Date: 19 July 2019

Please be aware that some areas between Kampong blocks 409 and 410 will be temporarily closed to the public between Monday 22 July and Friday 9 August 2019 due to works to replace underground low voltage cables.

The underground low voltage cables connecting Kampong blocks 409 and 410 were recently tested and several cables were found to be in need of replacement. The affected areas are shown in the diagram below and include a section of the carpark between blocks 409 and 410 as well as the adjacent grassed parkland.

New electricity distribution pillars/green domes (as shown below) will be installed to supply electricity to blocks 409 and 410.

Installation of the green domes, and the works required to install new underground conduit to each of the buildings’ main switchboards, will require closing off access from the carpark to the central stairs of block 410, and the southern stairs of block 409 while this essential work is undertaken.

There will be no planned power outages during this period.

Outages will be necessary when the new cables are connected.

Residents will be advised before this is to occur, and any power disruptions will be kept to a minimum.

If you require any further information regarding the works, please contact the IOT Power Service Electrical Supervisor, Mark Milne on 9164 7111 ext 221 or 0439 215 914.
