How much will it cost to do a transmission and communication assets relocation or removal?

Costs can vary depending on the extent of the relocation work required. Western Power can complete a cost estimate specific to your requirements following receipt of your Relocation Enquiry and payment of the Relocation Enquiry Fee ($3,500 + GST).

We endeavour to replace assets on a 'like-for-like' basis however, wood poles have structural and height limitations so steel poles may be required to meet your requirements. It is not normally possible to re-use assets for relocation works.

A guide to indicative costs to relocate common transmission assets (+/- 50%):

  • 1 x wood transmission pole - $115,000
  • 1 x single circuit steel transmission pole - $560,000
  • undergrounding 500m of overhead 66kV/132kV transmission line - $3,880,000
