Work continues to progress on repairs to damaged transmission lines in the state’s Mid North.

Multiple crews are working in the field near Melrose to erect temporary towers and restring transmission lines.

ElectraNet expects one of the damaged circuits will be back up on Monday, provided weather conditions remain stable. Another circuit will follow a few days later.

Crews are also working in the field near Blyth to help strengthen the underlying network. This work is expected to be completed next week.

The safety of the public, staff and contractors remains ElectraNet’s priority.
