How do I find out where underground electricity cables are?

We encourage anyone carrying out work that involves digging to request plans before hand to avoid underground electricity cables. This is vital for your safety as well as ensuring we can provide a reliable supply of electricity.

How to request plans:

  1. Go to LinesearchbeforeUdig and register to create your account. You can then submit your free enquiry.
  2. You will receive an instant response showing assets near you
  3. The companies with electricity, water, gas, fiber optic etc will then send you plans of where their cables and/ or assets are near you. Please note that each company will do this in accordance with their processes.
