Wellington Electricity is undergounding some of their High Voltage cables in Ohariu Valley
From September 2019 up to November 2019, we're undergrounding sections of our High Voltage cables in an area close to 272 Ohariu Road, Ohariu Valley.
The project involves trenching, directional drilling and cable hauling along a prescribed route (shown below) to install the new electricity cables.
There will be disruption to traffic and pedestrian flows during this time but our contractor Northpower will employ traffic management to ensure vehicles and residents are guided safely around the work sites. To ensure that the general public and our work crews are kept safe the work area will be clearly marked with signage and traffic cones. At times the area will be also be protected by fencing.
There will be heightened noise levels from the movement of heavy equipment, though this will usually be within normal working hours. We will work to keep any noise and disruption to a minimum and appreciate your patience while we complete this important work.
