Western Power - road closure in Snailbeach/Stiperstones area.

March 18, 2018 10:28 AM

Dear All

Western Power have put up signs in the Snailbeach and Stiperstones area stating that the road will be closed for 10 days from 3rd April

Local residents were supposed to get letters from Western Power explaining what was going on but few did. Those who did either thought it was about their electricity supply and possible outage or were confused about where it was happening. This communication does not appear to have been a consultation and has left everyone confused about what is actually happening. They did not consult me or the pub and shop.

In reality they are replacing poles and the electricity lines to people homes.

I spent much of Friday afternoon trying to work out exactly what this was and how we might deal with any road closure impact. In conversation with officers we will press for the road to be open as much as possible - especially when they are not on site. It may be that it will only be closed when they are actually replacing a pole.

As soon as I hear more I will let you know.
