Works On Arrenway and Triton Drive

We’re upgrading some network equipment

Vector owns and operates networks that distribute electricity and gas across the greater Auckland region. We are constantly working to ensure the safety and reliability of our networks.

We are writing to inform you about some upcoming work we are completing around your area, including details around how it could potentially impact you, given your property’s proximity to the worksite.

We will be replacing and upgrading an existing high voltage network switch as the current one is reaching its end of serviceable life. This equipment enables us to control the flow and the distribution of the power supply around the network more efficiently.

The equipment that is being replaced is located outside 52 Arrenway Drive Rosedale, Auckland and a new hv cable will be installed from 52 Arrenway Drive down Triton Drive to Rosedale Road. The work will be completed by our contractor Northpower.

These planned projects have been carefully assessed to minimise impact wherever possible and we thank you for your patience during these works.

How this work will affect you

The entire scope of our site works, from preparation to completion is scheduled to take place from Approx 5/11/2023 – 12/2/2024 weather permitting.

During the work period, please expect the following:

  • Work hours and noise minimisation – most of the work will happen between 7am and 6pm, however, some aspects of the project may be completed overnight between 10pm and 6am to help minimise customer interruption. There will be low to medium noise on an intermittent basis during these times. If we need to complete any work at night, we will aim to minimise noise. Any lighting used is only as much as is required to safely undertake the work and will be directed away from residents’ homes where practically possible.
  • Traffic management – traffic management will be in place to allow crews to work safely. Traffic controllers will be on site as needed to assist with traffic flows as needed.
  • Outages – if any outages are needed as part of the work, you will have received prior notification of these. If you use medical equipment that relies on electricity, you should let your power company know, and ensure you are prepared for power disruption. If there is an immediate health threat, please contact your health provider or call 111.
  • Parking restrictions – there will be limited parking directly around the worksite to allow our trucks and vehicles access to the worksite. Traffic controllers will assist residents with parking if required.
  • Excavation work – there will be a small excavation area as part of the work which will create occasional noise.
  • Pedestrian management – parts of the footpath may need be closed temporarily for pedestrian safety.
