The work is part of Transpower's North Auckland and Northland project with 37 kilometres of 220 kV under- ground cable circuit being installed between Albany and Pakuranga over the next two years. The cables will be connecting through new substations at Hobson St and Wairau Rd. Pakuranga plays a major role in the project with the installation of four sections of cable between Albany and Pakuranga and the removal of one of the overhead transmission lines between Pakuranga and Penrose being key components. Work on trenching and cable installation from Pakuranga to Penrose is expected to start next month and continue throughout next year. Staged dismantling and removal of the Pakuranga to Penrose A line is expected to begin in November. General manager for grid projects Mike Carter describes the work as essential for addressing north Auck- land's reliance on the single trans- mission line between Otahuhu and Henderson. This is the final leg of three major projects to reinforce the power supply into the upper North Island. Investment of this scale in the national grid has not occurred since the 1960s. Mr Carter says all efforts will be taken to minimise disruption during construction. Visit www.gridnewzealand.co.nz.
