WMTS-JA No: 1, 66kV Circuit Melbourne
Victoria 2004

Client: CitiPower/Powercor Australia


Daly’s Constructions completed this project for CitiPower / Powercor in the Melbourne CBD, Victoria. The project was a Citipower/Powercor joint project and involved the installation of a new underground circuit within conduits for approximately 3.3km.

This was a turnkey project requiring system design, route selection, procurement, installation and termination works. The longest pulls were approximately 1,000 metres within conduit requiring the installation and operation of multiple caterpillars at strategic locations to ensure pulling tensions were not exceeded.

The project required significant traffic management and detailed planning with statutory authorities given the extreme volume of traffic on Spencer Street, Melbourne.
