Powerco’s project to lay a power cable from upper Vogeltown to Moturoa has reached the intersection of Carrington, Hori and Huatoki streets.
Please take care when using this intersection during the works period.
The intersection will remain open to traffic, and drivers should follow the direction of traffic management signs.
Footpaths will remain open throughout the works period. While the pedestrian crossing on Carrington Street will be closed for a short time in the next few weeks, Powerco will have an alternative crossing system set up during that time.
- The $11 million project involves 9.2km of trenching, the laying of ducting and the installation of cables that will connect substations at Moturoa and upper Carrington Street. The work was necessary as national grid operator Transpower will decommission Powerco's supply point at Port Taranaki by early 2020.
