Western Power has recently introduced a new below ground service pit to battle the complications of space limitation of micro lots and where typical mini pillar installs presents a hazard. The use of the service pit will be at WP’s discretion and shall only be considered where no other arrangements are possible. The service pit is of dimension 394(W) x 540(L) x 610(D) however occupies a 1x1m footprint due to the requirement of a surrounding hard stand surface (e.g. concrete, bitumen, paving). The hard stand surface around the pit is to be completed prior to WP’s handover and therefore issues may arise for the future lot owner due to the difference of preferred surface treatment in the vicinity of the pits.
