Western Power Planned Works

Western Power has a large program of work planned in the Shire of Kojonup, from November 2019 to January 2020 to maintain infrastructure and ensure power reliability.
During this time over 200 poles will be replaced. The work will be undertaken by Western Power crews and there are several power outages scheduled, from November 2019 to January 2020. Works will be concentrated in Jingalup, Lumeah, Kojonup and Boilup.
In order to complete the work safely, the work needs to be carried out on de-energised lines. This means that power outages will be required and given the volume of work, unfortunately some customers will be impacted by multiple outages. All affected customers will be notified (by letters and emails) of upcoming outages and information will also be posted on social media.
The green dots (below) indicate the pole to be replaced.
