Pakuranga to Penrose construction update

28 May 2013

As part of the North Auckland and Northland (NAaN) Grid Upgrade Project we are installing underground cable between Pakuranga and Penrose substations, under existing roads and within our designated transmission corridor. This update outlines what we are doing in the area at the moment.

Ti Rakau Drive

Works along Ti Rakau Drive are proceeding well despite the recent spate in wet weather with a number of construction sites in place. In the coming weeks there will be a single lane for eastbound traffic between Edgewater Drive and Ti Rakau Bridge which will cause significant delays for those travelling along Ti Rakau Drive. If possible please:

  • Avoid Ti Rakau Drive between Reeves Road and Ti Rakau Bridge
  • Plan your journey and use suggested detours
  • If you are a bus passenger, allow for extra time in your journey .

Waipuna Bridge: closure of city bound lanes

Until Thursday 30 May, the city bound lanes on Waipuna Bridge will be closed overnight and two lanes will be maintained during the day.

Waipuna Road - cable installation

Traffic management remains in place on Waipuna Road while cable installation is underway. Please drive carefully around our sites.
