TransGrid and the ACT Government The project is the second and final stage of the ACT Second Electrical Supply Project. Stage one of the project was completed in February 2013 with the build of the 330/132 kV substation at Williamsdale.
This project is a joint undertaking between the ACT Government and TransGrid, the owner, operator and manager of the NSW and ACT electricity transmission network.
TransGrid and the ACT Government have worked together collaboratively over a number of years to develop a project that meets and balances a range of objectives.
Site selection and location A number of options have been considered for the arrangement of a new switching station and associated transmission lines. These were subject to a multi–criteria assessment considering many factors including:
> Security of supply > Impact on urban development
potential > Environmental and heritage values > Cost of infrastructure > Land use planning, amenity and
co–location > Technical requirements.
Through a rigorous site selection process and collaborative working
group with the ACT Government agencies, a site for a new switching station had been identified and was approved by the ACT Government. This site is shown on the map overleaf.
Working with you TransGrid is committed to working with you throughout the development of this project. We will continue to provide residents and rural lessees and interested community members with information about the project on a regular basis.
This is the first of our newsletters to inform you about the construction of the ACT Second Electrical Supply Project to be constructed near Stockdill Drive, West Belconnen.

New Stockdill switching station
What does the project involve? > The construction of a switching
station near Stockdill Drive and a section new 330 kV transmission line linking the new switching station to TransGrid’s existing Canberra substation and the recently completed Williamsdale substation.
Why is this project needed? > To ensure TransGrid’s electricity
supply meets the reliability level prescribed by the ACT Government
> To ensure the safe and reliable supply of electricity to the ACT and support the future growth of the region.
Why was the Stockdill Drive site chosen?
> To minimise the impact on the local environment and future urban communities
> Where possible, existing utility easements and road reservations will be used for co–location of electricity infrastructure.
When is the project going to start and finish?
> Environmental approval: July 2015 – February 2017
> Commencement of site works: September 2018
> Completion of works: December 2019.
