Plan ahead. If you are unsure about how close your work will come to overhead power lines, underground cables or other electricity equipment, you should contact us via WhatsApp, Facebook Live Chat or our Customer Helpline. Click here to view our contact options.

We may need to make the surrounding area safe (for example by providing an outage) and this will be free of charge.

When You've Received A Network Map

  • Mark the positions of the cables and pipes using paint or waterproof marking on the ground or short pegs and marker tape on soft ground.
  • Ensure that sub-contractors are fully briefed and have clear copies of the marked up drawings on site.
  • Make no assumptions. Cable tiles and tapes may have been moved by other contractors and utilities and they may not be buried at standard depths.
