Vector is undertaking an electricity cable upgrade project to reinforce the power supply in the Warkworth area.
The work will be carried out by a combination of methods, including horizontal directional drilling (HDD) where practical, and open trenching for some of the project.
The project is being carried out in stages:
- From the main intersection, south to the SH1 bridge over Mahurangi River, Vector is installing new power cables and ducts by trenchless methods
- Over Mahurangi River bridge Vector is installing new power cables and ducts under the footpath of the bridge.
Vector stated the project schedule allows for the fastest possible completion and minimum level of disruption for the type of work that is taking place.
