Vector is replacing electricity cables to reinforce the power supply in the Waverley and Airedale St area and ensure customers continue to receive a secure power supply.
We regret any inconvenience this four-month project may cause and assure you that we will do everything we can to limit disruption. Thank you, in advance, for your patience and co-operation while we carry out the work efficiently and safely.
Streets affected by this project include:
July 2012 - January 2013
We are replacing the existing 11kV cables with more powerful 22kV cables. The project involves digging trenches within the road, installing ducts and then laying the new cables within those ducts. We will also replace outdated electrical equipment before resurfacing the road as the final stage of the project.
We will carry out the work in sections to minimise disruption. Only the road directly fronting properties will be affected and only for short periods at a time.
By having on-site generators, we’re aiming to maintain power supply throughout the project. We will contact customers individually, keeping them up-to-date with progress and do our best to avoid any power cuts.
While Waverley St will not be available to through-traffic, we have plans in place to ensure building access will not be affected. Pedestrians will still be able to pass by the work sites and the safety of all road users and workers will be protected.
We will use steel sheets over trenches to ensure access is maintained at all times and, in the event that any accessway or driveway is affected, we will contact residents and business owners before we begin work.
