Electrical Rebuild in Clarkson - Update

September 15, 2015 
RE: Electrical System Rebuild for Lakeshore Road West, Clarkson Road South, Missenden Crescent, Perseden Road, Dry Pine Gate, Wylan Court, Angela Crescent and Orr Road. 
A rebuild of the electrical distribution system is scheduled to begin in September 2015 and will last approximately 3 months. Work will include the replacement and relocation of the following: old, decaying poles, power lines, transformers and associated hardware. To meet current Electrical Safety Authority and Canadian Standards Association requirements, it will be necessary to add new poles and associated hardware to locations where none currently exist. 
We would also like to advise that tree trimming will be required on trees that are near our electrical equipment. Trees will be pruned to ensure that a minimum three-year growth clearance and safe distance is maintained from the main power lines. Dead, defective and structurally weak branches may also require removal. 
. It is our intention to carry out this work with as little inconvenience to our customers as possible. However, during this period of construction, there may be some road access limitations while crews are working. Occasional power interruptions will also be required as crews transfer hydro lines. Notification of any planned power interruptions will be delivered to all affected residents in advance. 
Customers can expect to see new poles delivered to their neighbourhood on Thursday, September 17, 2015. Crews will begin work on Monday, September 21, 2015. 
. If you have any questions before or during the course of this job, please contact Mark Bobanovic, Supervisor of Contractors & Forestry at 905-283-4256. 


  1. July 8, 2016: When the new poles were added a number of old poles along Orr road and Clarkson Road south were sawed off and are often in close proximity to the new larger poles. They are an added eyesore. Is this situation temporary? if so when will these stubs be removed? If not what can we do to improve this?
