Helicopter line maintenance

Western Power conducts line maintenance work throughout the year. This challenging but very important work involves using a helicopter to conduct routine maintenance of high voltage transmission lines.

Farmers should consider moving livestock from paddocks with powerlines as the helicopter has to hover low and may need to land for closer inspections and refuelling.

Scheduled inspections for July to October 2018

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