A feasibility has been done & design is progressing, a new transmission Ring is being constructed through Robertstown the Exchange for transmission. This will take a few months & is a substantial project in itself.

The current plan is to start on site by 12th Oct 2018 with initial foundation work and normal construction period is approx. 4-5 weeks.

Expected site complete date is mid-November at this stage.

900m of new fibre cable will be hauled from exchange to East & Geranium Plains Rd using existing infrastructure.

3.2km of new Fibre will then be ploughed from there to Base Station at the bottom of the tower which will be 84 metres high.
