Will all the old overhead wires and poles be removed?

Yes, all distribution wires and poles will be removed. This may not occur in some areas until late in the project because some parts of the overhead network cannot be turned off until all properties have been changed to the new underground network. Transmission lines and poles in project areas are not included and will remain in place – these occur in about 30% of project areas.
