Newcastle - Civic substation upgrade
Ausgrid is upgrading the electrical substation in Christie Place, Newcastle, which supplies power to City Hall and Civic Theatre.
The existing substation will be demolished and replaced with a new kiosk. In conjunction with this upgrade, we're installing a new electrical distribution network to these venues.
Work commenced in August 2018 and will be completed by the end of June 2019.
What to expect
Christie Street will be closed from time to time to enable the work to occur, however impacts to City Hall and Civic Theatre will be minimal.
