Public Advisory - NB Power replaces aircraft safety markers on high voltage Transmission lines

2016-04-26


Fredericton, N.B. – NB Power will be conducting important maintenance work on two high voltage transmission lines in the Mactaquac and Madawaska area by replacing safety markers that warn low-flying aircraft of the location of the lines.

“This is an important part of the regular maintenance on our transmission lines,” said Tony O’Hara, NB Power’s Chief Technology Officer and Vice President of Engineering. “We will be using a helicopter to replace these markers that make the high voltage lines very visible to aircrafts flying in the area so they are able to maintain a safe distance.”

Approximately 25 markers will be replaced on the line that crosses over the Saint John River in the Mactaquac and in the Saint-Jacques area. This work is not expected to cause any power interruptions for customers. However, short traffic delays are expected in Northwest New Brunswick. 

Four of the markers are located where the transmission line crosses the Trans-Canada Highway in the Saint-Jacques area. As a result, traffic on Highway 2, the Trans-Canada Highway, will be stopped four times – twice on the eastbound lanes, and twice on the westbound lanes, for about 20 minute at each location between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 28th.

“NB Power has been working with Brun-Way who maintains the Trans-Canada Highway and representatives will be on site while the work is being performed to assure the safety of motorists and all those involved. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank everyone for their cooperation,” said O’Hara.
