I see my eponymous comments deserved a place, thanks.
The edition 315 (09/10/14) has some scope for comment.
Eddie Wilkinson is spot on with the suggestion to run the feeders for buildings at the back of buildings along Gaskill Street has merit, but the main cost to consumers will be the re-positioning of their distribution through their buildings because the wiring will be of some antiquity and very fragile. That the new ring feeders and drops to the meter boards should be underground is a given. Do it right the first time is the mantra that should be applied. Then we have the question of perhaps a ‘Federation’ design of street lighting – muted and many would be my contribution, similar to the old gas lamp standards of London. My first job in Canowindra was as a ‘Trainee Linesman’ with the Central Western County Council until I enlisted in the RAAF in ’64.
