The residential subdivision in Palmerston that is being developed by Peet on land owned by CDU is achieving a host of milestones.

Work at The Heights, Durack to deliver a $3.6 million project to relocate the overhead powerlines underground is nearing completion.

New termination poles and cables have been installed and the final stage of works, which includes switching the power transmission from overhead lines to underground lines and removing the old electricity towers and overhead cables, is underway.
