Access to our assets

Third party requests for access to SA Power Networks assets such as substation sites, buildings, poles and towers, ducts and telecommunications fibre will be assessed on the technical grounds and, where feasible, granted. However each person submitting a request must be prepared to negotiate contractual and commercial terms and conditions.

Access for the purposes of commercial advertising will not be accepted.

The most common requests are from telecommunications providers rolling out broadband services or mobile phone equipment, councils or their contractors wanting to install CCTV devices, and to a lesser extent, shared use of radio communications towers.

Access fees are negotiated based on the volume of use, for example number of poles or length of duct, location and period of the access licence contract required.

Applications and enquiries should be directed to the Facilities Access & Projects Coordinator on 08 8404 5399.
