Solving problems underground for the Molonglo Valley project

Our team brought its expertise as part of the Molonglo 132kV Relocation Project, part of the ACT Government’s Suburban Land Agency work on subdividing the region for future homeowners.

In Australia’s capital, new housing subdivisions in the Molonglo Valley have required the relocation of 1,500 tonnes or 58km of 132kV cables underground and the removal of above ground transmission towers. Works such as these have many moving parts, requiring clear, upfront communication and a unified plan with all contractors to ensure works keep moving and are completed safely. Zinfra was awarded tender for the project and has been on the ground in Canberra, working on relocating Evoenergy’s Molonglo transmission assets since 2022.

The team worked alongside principal civil contractors to overcome significant safety and workplace challenges. The project brought together two of Zinfra’s key business units, the Projects and Infrastructure Business Unit led by Site Manager, Dan Coleman, and the Power Services Unit led by Construction Manager, Gary Kiri.
